Poe and I jumped in the car and headed down to where the road meets the water for sunset on the lake with the ducks and fish.  We caught some amazing pics.  Sit back and enjoy a sunset on Lower Kaubashine

This is my favorite picture.  Was in the right place at the right time with wonderful lighting.  Could not take a bad pic if you tried

As we walked along the road by the lake the fish were moving.  I did not get a good look at what was in the shoreline making these ripples but there were a lot of them and they moved up the shoreline as we went making ripples.  My guess is some fish was spawning along the shoreline

Troy identified these ducks as Hooded Mergansers.  They were on the lake quite a bit last summer.  I still have yet to catch the loon on the lake

Hope you enjoyed the pics.  Poe and I got out of cleaning up dinner to head down to take the pics.  Might have to do that more often

It was a duck gathering on Lower Kaubashine this morning.  I spotted these and about 30 others gathering a still Lower Kaubashine this morning.  I know there is a duck guru out there that knows what kind they are.  Without looking them up I believe they are Merganzers?

They were all camera shy and took off to the other side of the lake.  You can see in this pic how still the lake was

Everything out and lake shore ready for winter

I am starting to put together the 2010 calendar they are going to be 20 a piece.  If you are interested send me an email at info@blackscliff.com with how many you would like so I get an idea of how many I am ordering.  I hope to put them in the mail after Thanksgiving or the 1st week in December so they will be in plenty of time for being under the tree
