Day 048: Performing Goldeneyes!

Yesterday with the exception of one lone goldeneye, only the mallards had rediscovered that the Coast Guard Cutter Alder had broken the ice in the Duluth Ship Canal. Today the goldeneyes moved in, and they put on a stellar performance. I had hoped this might be the case, and had held off doing any bird photography this morning in hopes both the sun would come out, and the ducks would perform. I was lucky on all counts. Enjoy all the photo sequences. Burst mode photography is a wonderful asset.
