This Sunday our suffocating, month-long heat wave broke. Don’t get me wrong, it was still hot at noon when I walked around Lake Lenexa in the direct sunlight in 95F (34C) weather, but it still felt way better than the past several weeks with temperatures that were 10 degrees hotter. After a ridiculously busy several weeks at work, and the extreme heat, it felt so nice to get outside and shoot pictures for almost two hours. The weather forecast is much more manageable here Somewhere-in-the-Middle-of-the-USA the rest of this week. Plus also, I’m headed to Toronto for work Wednesday through Friday. Look for a flurry of posts as I try to share my favorites from yesterday and today and make way for a clean slate for Toronto later this week.
Speaking of Toronto, if you have any suggestions of what I should try to shoot in the early morning or evenings after my business meetings while I’m there, it’s not too late to share your thoughts here.
Onto the photograph…
As I walked across a bridge at Lake Lenexa, a group of these cute, little ducks rushed out from beneath the bridge and into the waterway to the right. I’m not sure what kind of duck these guys are, but I don’t think they are mallards. I wonder if H. J. Ruiz behind all of the beautiful bird pics at Avian 101 would be willing to take a look and bestow his wisdom?
