photoblog image Mallard and California Roaches, San Anselmo Creek

Mallard and California Roaches, San Anselmo Creek

I work in San Anselmo, North San Francsico Bay Area. For lunch during the Spring and Summer collegues and I would sit next to the creek and eat our lunch. There were several spieces of fish in the creek and we could not come to an agreeemnet as to how many kinds there were and what they were. This picture was one of  several taken to send to naturalists to help us identify the  fish.

Additionally there was this Mallard who always came over to investigate.

In the end we decided that there is California Roaches which you see here with the Mallard, Sacramneto Suckers, on the  bottom, and Rainbow, possibly Steelhead, Trout, plus Herons, crawdads...

very nice shot. full of life, well done
John Eagle: Thank you.
How unusual! very ethereal feel to this photo and I love how you chose to illuminate the water and the fish. The soft colors of the background really complement the Mallard. Welcome to Shutterchance!
John Eagle: Thank you. Actually, mother nature, if you will, chose the lighting for me. The sun was coming in between some trees and the leaves helped diffuse the light. For me it was mainly timing. I saw the shot once when the duck cruised through the light spot and then I just waited and hoped.
