As I reached the marsh in the dark, I set up a few feet from the edge of the cattails just as the sun rose heard many geese flying behind the trees, unfortunately none came to the water.As the light came up I noticed a Grebe swimming around driving,to my surprise I watched her catch a small trout.
Once a few birds flew by, a couple of blackducks landed to my left side playing about,after about half hour few mallards started to pitch in for some great landing shots.
As the sun came up and the birds stopped flying about I came to realize how much I missed my days following the waterfowl vowing to return in a few days.Here are a few shots from the morning:
