Winter is just ducky

I love ducks. The types of ducks around here vary by the season. American widgeons and goldeneye are two species that winter here in the not-so-sunny Puget Sound region. The mallards are around all year.

It’s fun to watch the ducks. The goldeneye are diving ducks that fish together in groups.

If you look up close…

These aren’t what you normally think of when you think of spring flowers, but, if you look very close, you can see that these alder catkins are clusters of little dark pink flowers.

From a distance the alders have a pink/orange patina due to the color of the catkins (they are the deciduous trees with the light trunks).

For Cee’s Flower of the Day and Denzil Nature Photo Challenge: Pink.
