Extraordinary images Marco. I'm a big fan of low angle shooting and you seem to have mastered it. Some of the very best I've seen of any ducks. I know how tough it is to get close to Wood Ducks, did you use a camo drape or blind set up?

Beautiful stuff.

#5 is just an outstanding image. I love the low angle and detail, I wish it was mine.
