Taken at the Great Salt Plains, Cherokee, OK. I was so close to them, that I had trouble getting momma and babies in the same picture. I was using the 7D with 500L and 1.5x TC.

Like them all. Was there a reason why you used f/4 and not a little narrower when you could have got more of the ducklings in focus? Just wondering.

Very nice. I think being to close would be a nice problem for a change.

The problem being that I was not ready once I saw them. I got too excited about them being that close and my reaction was to just shoot.

Beautiful captures Bill. Nice detail in these shots. I hope the Hoodies come back here next winter. They are fun to watch.
