I will try, but I don't promise that they will be there. Seeing as how I live in the middle of a city I don't really see very many with good colors or anything. If I get a good one however I will absolutely post it here!

More of the family... I went a bit overboard on the post work though - the ducks are very saturated =P

Good shot. I would have liked to see at least one of the little ones looking at the camera! This would have given a specific one to look at. That is something that I personally like though. I don't know maybe it's just me.


Well anyways I might be going to the park tomorrow. So I might be on the thread officially with a quaker!

Waddles...and tons of em....whooohoooooooooooooooo!

MBrutus, it is hard for me to have a favorite!! I think I will have to choose the little Quackage that is quack #3...the light colored duck...but I have to say the eagle/falcon in flight, bringing brunch, is pretty special too! You must have had a great day, because you sure got some great photos...I can not wait to see more...

Thanks patti!!!!!


I'm not sure how long it will take for me to take more of ducks because like I said there isn't very many of them where I live. =(


I will see what I can do for other types of creatures like dragonflies or something! Then I'll post them in the necisary thread.

The hawk was AWESOME!!!! He flew right over us!!! It was a sight to see for sure!!!


Well until next time!!!


P.S. KEEP POSTING MORE DUCKS!

"only have the 35mm"
Pah, that teaches you something about perspective and "zooming with your feet".
Beautiful composition!

Haha!!! I like it!!! I have a tree just like that at the park I went to to capture the hawk! I like the way they just sat there for you to take it!!! When I went I couldn't get close to the two that were there! Maybe about 100 feet and they were off!!!

Good capture keep it up!

... thanks, the trick i use to get so close is to sneak up behind an obstacle (usually a tree or bush), and then just peek out slightly from the side... only problem with this is when the shutter goes off, so do the birds... so i usually only get one try, but that's what you gotta do when your lens has no reach.
