Essex Patch presents its Photo of the Day.
Dundalk photographer Jimmy Rode captured this image of a red-breasted merganser seemingly sunning, or perhaps looking for dinner, from a perfectly placed rock. He took in the scene while at Cox's Point Park in Essex. View other Essex Patch photos of the day here. Do you have a photo you'd like featured as the Essex Patch Photo of the Day?

A recent "road cruise" through Essex resulted in some beautiful photos of the signs of spring.
On a gray and dreary day here in Essex, I thought I'd bring a little sunshine to the day by sharing some photographs I took on a recent drive through the Back River peninsula in search of signs for spring. In my travels, I found many beautiful flowering trees, private gardens that have been lovingly planted and maintained and county parks looking freshly trimmed and colorful with ornamental trees in full bloom. I also got a kick out of a large-mouthed bass mailbox spotted on Barrison Point Road. Do you have pictures of your spring flowers? Add them to this gallery by clicking on the "upload photos and videos" button below.
