You have no doubt heard of snow geese. These are the much more elusive snow ducks.

Oh my gosh, these are just wonderful, I love the geese in the sunset. This is the only one I could find right now, we were at a state park, the deer are very tame, it was the highlight of my weekend, could of had a 300. fine if they caught me feeding her banana!

Living in Minnesota, I never see armadillos. What a bizzare looking creature. A face only a mother could love. Thanks for sharing.

Ron- You were able to capture the notoriously shy snow duck with your camera. I can't understand why the Wily Winter
Armadillo of the Great North has managed to elude you - they should be easy to track in all that snow you get!

RE: Theme of the week for 8/16....wildlife

What a sweet face, Konrad!! (The deer, not yours.) :-)

And those are wonderful shots of the Waxwings.

I didn't take this pic--wish I could say I've been this close to a whale. It was taken this week by a friend on a whale watching trip. Couldn't resist posting it here, considering the theme. I love it.

pfmastin, what is that last one you posted? A bird version of Medusa?
That grasshopper is so cool.

Thank you all for the fantastic pictures this week.

Isn't it a great character, ronf? Unfortunately, I don't know what it is. The last two bird photos were taken at the Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park in Scotland Neck, NC. I looked on the website but didn't have any luck identifying the bird with the hairdo and I didn't label it at the time.

RE: Theme of the week for 8/16....wildlife

Taken in late October....Yosemite Valley. Hope she lasted thru the winter.

RE: Theme of the week for 8/16....wildlife

I think the strange black feathered bird with the crest is a curassow.

I should have added that the bird identification is courtesy of MaNature, our bird/snake/critter ID expert on the Florida Gardening forum. She's our 'go to' person for these questions and she always gets it!
Thanks Marcia!
