Willow Lake at Sunset

Our local newspaper had an article yesterday about the water fowl and raptors that can be viewed at Willow Lake, just a few miles from our house.  We have been talking about going there, so the article gave us the nudge to get in the car and head on over.  Since we had only driven by before, we had no idea where to park or what trail to walk, so we weren’t very prepared. We parked in one area and asked a cyclist, who suggested we park closer to the lake. Since the sun was low in the sky, we took her advice and ended up parking near the water.  The lake is full of ducks and other water fowl- all very skittish around my camera.  We didn’t see any shore birds or raptors, but enjoyed the views during the golden hour and at sunset.
