A Day Off

One of 8 Killdeer at the Montlake Fill.

I spent yesterday hanging photos for my February exhibit at Great Harvest Bread Co. in Ballard. I’d designed the installation, framed 14 photos, and then hung them all—a week-long affair ending with a very long day.

And so I took some rejuvination time today to kayak around the Union Bay Natural Area, popularly known as the Montlake Fill. I did not find the rare Tufted Duck that was reported there, but I did see eight Killdeer on a tiny island of mud, rocks, and waterlily roots. Killdeer have a plaintive call and, to me, their big orange-ringed eyes always look worried. Click the image for a larger view.
