POTD - Wildlife at Work

About once a month, I have to be at work by 7am in order to help assess the day's maintenance and contractor activities. I work at a chemical manufacturing site, so we make sure all the permits are filled out properly and make sure there aren't any safety concerns associated with the job.

Today was my scheduled day, so I'm at work as the sun is coming up, which I do enjoy. One of today's maintenance jobs is at our site's Fire water pond. This is the source of water to be used in the event of a fire. Needless to say, we never want to utilize the pond or the fire water pumps, but it's there on site.

It was my first trip out to the Fire water pond. Imagine my surprise when I found out what was out there:

A peaceful, wildlife pond, complete with ducks, geese and birds:

The birds were chirping, the sun was shining and it was a nice discovery. I guess if I get stressed out in the office, I can always take a hike over to the Fire pond.

Wow--you got perfect focus on that red-winged blackbird. I love the way the color stands out against the browns of the background. Love this shot! (You know I love birdies. :-D)

What a beautiful place! I would have expected some cement hole in the ground:)

Great shot on the red-winged blackbrid, Shirley! I love how acrobatic they are on the cattails.
