A nice series, Ian; none here yet as the lake is still frozen, maybe on the river though.

Nice set Ian! They sure are a unique looking couple. I have seen a few here...from a distance!

Thanks AL, the ponds just very recently thawed out.

Thanks Sandy. There were a few in this little pond but these were the only pair to get that far. I got a call from one of my spotter informants that there were two pairs of wood ducks too, but they must have left before I got there.

Great set, Ian. But after seeing 5,6 and 7, I think I need a cigarette  :p


All I want is just a little more than I'll ever have.

Yes Rog, that's what you see. It's weird, animals and birds just seem to want to do it while I'm watching.

nice set, Ian... i love the hoodies! these seem a little soft, though, especially the first two... shot with a converter?

Thanks Rocky and yea, a bit soft for some reason this time. I was using a 2x extender which usually looks very good with the 1DX.
