At least you got them to look back. Most of the time all I get is them paddling away.

Me too always!

It was sub-zero wind chill and they were busy feeding in the shallow water. They didn't seem to mind me lying on the edge of the ice shelf (Lake Michigan shoreline, ice was several feet thick). That is the only time I have gotten close to them.

Love the water drops.

Ha, ha...darn near in the water. For an old man like me, it wasn't easy on the body.

Well you look young in your camo avatar ;)

Photographed in the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden located in Cape Town, South Africa.

As I was taking photos of the small flock of guineafowl in the garden, these two suddenly assumed the position shown in my photo: beaks open and necks extended_and they remained in that pose for well over a minute. While they were in this position, they made absolutely no sound whatsoever. No hissing, no squawks…not a peep. It seemed bizarre to me. When we returned from our trip, I couldn't find any information about this posturing behavior but assume it was some type of a threat display. I always prefer to photograph bird *behavior* rather than just a bird on a branch or on the ground and this certainly qualified for behavior I’d not seen before.

If anyone on POTN can confirm or explain their strange behavior, please let me know. Thanks!

LoL. That would be so beyond my abilities. My post processing skills barely get to the rudimentary level, and that is on a good day.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
