A special moment shared with a very special Eider drake… on a recent trip to MacMillan Wharf in PTown.
I could have stayed there all day, but was on a time crunch.
I had other images that showed this charming fellow’s eye more clearly, but I loved this one for that “air of mystery”…
I should have called my day at MacMillan Wharf in PTown, “A Tail to Tell” —
Because I saw a whole LOT of them as the sea birds dove and dove for fish!
It was a beautiful thing.
More pics to come!
A loverly Red-breasted Merganser who entered, Stage Left on Macmillan Wharf, when I was in PTown a little over a week ago.
She was just one, of many treasures that day…
My visit to PTown about a week ago reaped amazing gifts from the sea.
Among them were several Horned Grebes I met as I walked the docks at MacMillan Wharf.
Some were busy diving for fish…
Others mingling, maybe comparing notes about whose last catch was bigger??
Still others seemed absorbed in a major preening fest, oblivious to the world around them as they bobbed along.
And THIS one even had more than just a few things to say to me as I passed by her by.
How she made me giggle! 😉
I was struck by how soft and fluffy their feathers looked, even from a distance; water beads covering their backs after each deep dive.
But it’s their eyes that got to me most.
Bright red jewel beads against a canvas of gray and white feathers, a stunning contrast against the blue, blue sea!
I can’t wait to share some of the “new friends” I made on my visit to PTown.
Like this little Sweetheart who was SUCH a wonderful surprise!
Made it to Provincetown today, first time in I can’t remember HOW long.
And as some of you might imagine, all I could see were… the BIRDS!
I will be sharing some of these amazing feathered Ptown friends in mt blogs to come.
One and the same birds, I can assure you, that I’ll be dreaming about tonight. ❤
