A visit to Barnegat, NJ; nature photography by Tracy Bodeo, Lehigh Valley photographer

I took my kids to visit their cousins who live near Barnegat. It was a bit warmer than it had been in previous days, so we decided to take a quick beach walk by the lighthouse.  To our pleasant surprise, we were able to get a nice look at some Harlequin Ducks (both male and female), Greater Scaups and a female Long-Tailed Duck.  I didn’t get the greatest pictures, but good enough to document a few “lifers” (the females).
