Hi Xnavy, Im curious... I know the grren bay area quite well and I know there is quite a bit of hunting pressure in your neck of the woods... are the ducks that tame up there or do you have a really well concieled place to shoot from to get this close to them. you seem to be litterally right on top of them :)

Also... have you ever considered using an editing program such as lightroom? it looks like quite a few of your shots are taken in shaded areas and Im not sure what kind of control settings you have, if any, on your camera to compensate for this. A program like lightroom will allow you to bring back some of the natural saturations as well as a bit of sharpening for some of your shots which you may enjoy.

Just a helpful tip :)

Im enjoying looking at your pics as it reminds me of the spring to come up here :D

Heres a couple from my summer/fall.
I haven't gotten out nearly as much as I would have liked to this year...it's been a "busy" year :roll:
Pleasant surprise last weekend,the Harlequins have returned to my area,they were A.W.O.L. last year.
I plan on spending some time focusing on them this winter.
I have something "special" in store for them that will get me a lot more up close and personal :twisted:
Google up ...Go Pro Hero 3 "Black Edition" :)

OMG... its a KPR siting!!!

Seems like we have both had busy years or things that interfered with photography at different times. Its great youre back and posting... I hope :twisted:

Ive been trying to get out the last month or so but we have had an early and severe winter to date... add no vehicle for the past 3 weeks and yup.. not much to post. Get the Jeep back tomorrow though so hopefully we get some sun and decent weather soon.

hope you and your better half are happy healthy and well

missed you my friend :D

I'm not sure if this guy has webbed feet or not. It is a bird I don't recognize. Seen near Green Bay, WI, USA. Taken with a Canon Powershot SX 150:

One from the fall...

Weather up here has been nasty the last few weeks so no outings at all... colder than usual and lots of cloud and snow... grrrr.... good news is that in about another 5 or 6 weeks we should start seeing our first arrivals from down south again... cant wait :twisted:
