Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

A Visit to the Pond

Last week I published a few photos on a nearby pond. The discovery of a pair of mallard ducks that had made this pond their nesting and summer residence encouraged me to come back to see if I could capture them with my Canon movie camera. Here is the video composition with music from Grieg Peer Gynt Suite no. 1 op. 46 (Morning Mood). Enjoy.

      1. Isn’t that a word you’d have known while growing up in Germany?
        I guess the piston (Kolben) is the compact seed head before the release of seeds, and the pipe or tube (Rohr) is the stem. In contrast, English cattail refers to the fluffy stage of the seed head.
