Far from fowl Reflections

(For this photo essay you can click on any of the images for a larger version)

The MG&E (Madison Gas and Electric) runoff to Lake Monona keeps a small portion of water from freezing throughout the winter, providing limited habitat for waterfowl. Hitting the light just right in the late afternoon can render some interesting water reflections for photography. A recent visit to the spot revealed NORTHERN SHOVELER, MALLARD, GADWALL, HOODED MERGANSERS, COMMON GOLDENEYE and lots of AMERICAN COOTS.
