Windy with Ducks at Thomas Point

When I stepped out this morning, the weatherman had gotten it right again. There was a strong West wind with temps in the 40s,and I realized Thomas Point would be in the lee, so I went there after checking out a spot along Thomas Point Road where some Canvasbacks were resting. I managed a few good shots at the point, then headed to the grocery store for all the stuff I forgot yesterday. Afterward, I made a stop at Quiet Waters, where the West wind was working against me.

I’ve often overlooked the Bufflehead hen, who’s not as striking as her mate.
