The Contortionist

Lately, all I seem to be posting under Featured Photos are birds but that is what winter offers here on our grey, wet and foggy east coast of Vancouver Island.  This little Barrow’s Golden Eye was perfect eye candy for me while going through his bath ritual in ‘pea soup fog’ at Esquimalt Lagoon.  Because of the fog there is no glint in his eye but the pose was definitely worth a photo.
