Birds by the Water

Yesterday, lots of birds were enjoying the water of the St. Lawrence River.  It was a hot morning so they were looking for cool spots.

 The water reflecting willows leaves is a lovely marbled green.

 This assortment of geese and ducks found a sheltered spot in deep shade to rest in.

 It's amazing how far back a duck can turn its head.  Many of the ducks were having a mid-morning nap.

 This seagull, however, was out in full sun soaking up the rays.

Dozing geese, ducks and a cormorant making a sculptural display.  How do those geese sleep on one leg?
