the same affect Kate can be got from shore in a lot of cases. I shoot the loons from shore and get the same low on the water image. Of course you need the place and the loons or ducks. Water ways and dam’s between lakes here in Ontario make for great shooting sometimes.

That shot is truly a gem. I love it.

I find it difficult to take an interesting photo of Tufted Ducks, but your water level shots are excellent - I especially like the first one.

Edit : Is the protective clothing you wear with the floating hide warm enough, or have you had to add another layer or three?

Thanks..., it is warm enough for 3 hour´s in the water..., and this time I had learned to zip my waders correct, so I stayed dry...;o))

Very nice...I love that little bugger with just his head sticking out. He's obviously very comfortable.

Thanks LD
