Back to wildlife images for you today. I’m still working on the portraits but I went out yesterday afternoon looking to see what I could see and finally ended up at a popular fishing lake. These ducks caught my eye as I drove by so I turned around and decided that since my memory card was empty I would practice on them.
It was fun photographing these guys as they paid no attention to me and in fact came pretty close. At one point I had to go from 600 mm to 400 mm to get all the duck in the frame. Also unlike most of the wildlife I have photographed I didn’t have to make any butt shots because they walked toward me more than away from me.
I have to throw in an image of this Blue Heron. I did visit the Basin yesterday and he was the only critter present when I was there. The Basin has really been busy the last few times I’ve been there but yesterday it was more or less abandoned except for this guy.
I’ll leave you with this little Duck. He was very curious about me and the way he and his buddies were constantly walking by me gave me the idea that probably many of the fisherman’s children feed them, so they were looking for a handout. Unfortunately I didn’t have anything for them. I’ll have to remember to take some bread with me the next time I wander over to the lake.
That’s it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day and be careful.
