What a unique photo....not often you get the back of the head looking towards the beak!


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I live in Tacoma and had never heard of Ridgefield until your post. Looks like a great place for waterfowl. Do you live in the area?

Thanks for your comment Flo, I couldn't believe this bird let me get within 5 feet to take this shot. Yes KD, I live in Portland and its a 40 minute drive, but always worth it

What a great shot Mills, never seen one quite like it. I'm just getting back into photography, with a new 50D and 400 5.6 to play with. I live in Battle Ground, and can't wait for sunny weather and a break in work to line up so that I can hit Ridgefield!


I fish because that's what the voices in my head tell me to do.

Reflections i'm new to this myself, got my first camera just over a year ago. I've found by just shooting often my learning curve is continuously steep, rewarding and surprising. In one year gone from automatic using program mode, to full manual and really knowing my 50d controls. So I'm still a novice, happy with this amazing learning curve I'm experiencing. Still In a couple of years i imagine i'll start looking for professional advice though workshops etc. Good luck to you, but dont wait for sunny weather, get out now!
