Waterfowl


Downloading images from today and wanted to put up a quick post of a male Canvasback. It was 10 degrees this morning with a stout wind. Thankfully there was plenty of action to keep me moving. Had 4 layers of fleece and hand warmers to ward off the cold. It was exilerating. The above shot was in MD waters. I'm in NJ this evening now and will be shooting at Barnegat Bay in the AM. They are calling for single digit temps and I feel like I'm in Ivar's country. Blue Skies.

What a great capture, the pose is fantastic. I am glad to here you are having a good trip so far. It has been cold, I am working my two nights at the HFD and we have spent quite a bit of time out inthe elements.

It looks like the canvasback is trying to shake the cold from its feathertips.

I like this picture... the duck in action. I do not believe I have ever seen a duck like this.
