As promised I’d deliver some photos of wildlife from my trip to Acadia. I apologize that the quality is not the same as my usual posts. I took these images with a kit lens (55-250mm) as opposed to my usual 100-400mm L Lens.
There was a common loon swimming and fishing at Jordan Pond. I was able to get some video of it and some distant photos. I really lucked out when it swam underwater in the shallows near where I was taking the photos. The black and white pattern on the loon’s back actually casts a rainbow as it swims underwater.
I also encountered a couple of juvenile Black&White Warblers being attended to by their father. At Boothbay Harbor there was a Laughing Gull circling around the docks. The reflection of a tour boat made an interesting background when the bird dove towards the water to retrieve something floating in the water.
In Camden Harbor there were a lot of ducks. Mostly black ducks and some ducklings, but also this hybrid. My assumption is that it is a Mallard or a Black Duck crossed with a domestic duck. I can’t explain the white breast any other way, but I am open to suggestion.
The last photo is the duck that Jenny had when we went to Primo in Rockland. I couldn’t help but to include it.
