scenic watery roadsides for Scenic Sunday

Often at this time of year one will encounter an excessive amount of water along roadsides which have created siuch ponds or lakes that are not a year round thing. However these seasonal pools are interesting to explore with your camera eye. We encountered one such interesting water area which we thought might be an inviting oasis to wandering ducks last week. When we drove by it initially we had no luck, However on our return trip on the way home I asked David to drive by slowly and he did. until I said, "stop, back up, there's a hooded Merganser there!". If you enlarge the above photo by clicking on it, you will see the wilderness beauty in this roadside pool that we had seen. I love the beauty of Hooded Mergansers anytime but the natural colours of this setting was enhancing to the beauty of this wild creature.

And these Canada in this roadside pond really appeaedl to my senses. Their lonely sounding honks added to the wilderness setting as they swan by past my camera lens.
