Photos of birds, fish, flowers and miscellaneous things that catch my eye and instill a sense of wonder.

Dropkick Duck. In light of the Superbowl, I bring you the dropkick duck. Actually, "she" is the dropkick duckette doing a firm foot windup! Of course, being a "she" duck, she has the typical she-duck brown coloration which makes it oh so annoying to identify her. However, that nice big shovel of a beak suggests that she is a Northern Shoveler, Anas clypeata. A regular beak of distinction!
