I know there must be a ton of fish here in the bay, as there have been so many ducks around all week and I can see "spotches" of rough water where the fish are breaking near the surface. I watched ducks fish as a group again this moring and then they got frightened by a rather large loon that must have felt his fishing space was being encroached upon. The picture is of the ducks as they were rushing towards the shore away from the loon. I saw a very large flock of them tonight out in the middle of the bay rushing in a similar manner, but looking as though they were actually chasing fish. What a beautiful world we live in!
