Leucistic Canada Goose and Friends

I stopped in at Munson Pond today and found this leucistic Canada goose there amongst all the other geese, ducks and what-have-you at this time of year.

At the other end of the pond, I found some Bufflehead Ducks and Redhead Ducks in with a herd of Mallards. I’ve never seen so many Buffleheads in one place before and the Redheads are a new bird for my list – am up to 118 now, I think.

Mammatus Clouds

This morning I was sitting here at the computer and just happened to look up at the right moment. Funny how that works, isn’t it? One has to wonder why that specific moment in time?

Mammatus clouds are a rarity, but this is the second time I have been fortunate enough to catch them with the camera here in Kelowna this year.
