This Morning’s Sunrise & Moonset

We awoke to 5.5 inches of fresh snow.  Had I known, I’d have gotten up earlier this morning.  When I opened my verticals, I saw the full moon setting over Kent Island.  It was already losing it’s brightness with the sun rising quickly.  Those are Canvasbacks, Ruddy Ducks, Mallards, Redheads, Scaup, and Buffleheads sleeping in the channel.

Here’s the sunrise occurring at the same time over Marshy Creek.

Now a couple hours later, the ducks have increased in number and are closer to the ice and me.

I decided to stay right here and work from home.  Got plenty of paperwork to do.  Just how am I going to get any of it done when I can see all those ducks and the Dark-eyed Juncos, House Finches & Song Sparrows visiting my balcony six feet from me, all from where I am sitting?  I am sure the Eagles will be checking out the ducks too…..

You can bet my camera is right beside me.   🙂
