The male Mallards now have their green heads again. When they get back from molting, they’re all brown … you can’t tell the difference between male and female. It’s been quite a while since I posted any duck photo here, so I felt the time was ripe.
Green Head is also a place here outside Saint John. We have several heads here — Red Head and White Head.
Today was one of those gorgeous autumn days! Once the morning fog had lifted, the sun came out and the air was fresh and clean. As you can see, if you bring this picture up to size, the trees haven’t started to change colours yet. We’ve had a slight frost but not the real good type that makes the maples turn red and orange.
This nice weather couldn’t have been on a better day — we had two, huge cruise ships in the harbour … one expected and one not. The bigger one was on its way to the Bahamas but had to avoid hurricane Joaquin. They found a safe harbour here in Saint John instead.
