From Goose Pond area near Linton, Indiana


We saw this little guy a few days ago...at the same area we saw the Pelicans.


There was one pond that had a lot of coots...


However, they were not very close, and were just scattered all over  the entire pond.


There were also a few geese around...


That is the extent of what we saw, except we saw a couple eagles but they were much too far away to get a photo.

I hope to be visiting a wetland area tomorrow. I'm sure to see coots and Canada Geese but will count myself very lucky indeed to glimpse an eagle!

Hello Rose, pretty shots from the pond. I love the turtle and the coots. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Very "slick" looking turtle. :-)

The turtle is able to cast a reflection. I've never seen that before.

Excellent shots. On the ranch is an area called the goose Ponds and it is always full of webbed footed creatures. It is a nice little walk to get there and it doesn't freeze over in the winter. I should take some pictures nwxt time I am over there. We haven't been over to visit Cheri since last October. Too busy I guess.

You captured some lovely critters here Rose, I always love it when I see the coots, such dramatic face colouring, like those old coots are wearing a mask :)
