Ducks Can Brighten Up a Rainy Day in Okinawa
Out for a quick four-hour walk in the wind and rain, this was one image I decided to save.
Normally, the dog and I would be out for five hours or longer in better weather.
Lots of time was spent getting shelter from the cold drizzle, beneath a highway overpass.
The ducks (Northern Shovelers) hangout in wetlands, sucking what they eat from the water.
Sometimes a flooded field and other times, this canal they're seen taking flight from.
They migrate here for the winter months and I photograph them almost daily.
It's lots more fun, taking long walks on sunny days with blue skies.
But, any time spent outdoors beats sitting around stuck indoors, on a day in December.
What do you do for excitement on foul-weather days?
