that first one would be a great entry for the new challenge... Great motion pic...
As for missing a meal.. be careful, you might end up needing to buy all new clothes and then you won't be able to afford the photography habit.. :biggrin:
Very nice Patrick. I got a few decent ones, but these beat mine.
Night shots, Patrick, but you really should ask the little guy to comb away the dandruff before he poses for you again. :biggrin:
Even I might miss a meal to get shots like that...
I love that first shot Patrick. He looks really content and at ease in flight.
Both really nice Patrick, but the shot of the chick is stunning!
That little guy is so cute Patrick. Nice flyer as well.
Super sharp well done, still trying a decent ducky Bif myself :smile:
Hey miss a few more meals and you might have saved enough for more gear !!!
Thanks guys! I really like the chick too. Its a Muscovy chick and was one of about eight or nine others. They are almost as quick as the flyers. They don't stay still long.
They really enjoyed the feed that Frank brought to the pond.
Great shots Patrick! What do you shoot with?
BTW, I take crack corn with me to the pond. Gets me some attention!
That chick is just soooooooooooo cute! Excellent picture!
Thanks for the comments. I shoot with the D2x and a 300f4 with 1.4tc usually. Both were shot with this combo.
Thank you Sommer, did you get my PM wishing you a Happy Birthday the other day? I hope you had a good one.
Like I told you early today. That 1st shot is spectacular .... Well done !
Patrick...you outdid yourself with these two images. These are quite beautiful captures. The Mallard in flight is "nailed"....WOW! The little guy in the second image is tack sharp with great colors. Just beautiful!!!
I tried my hand at ducks in flight today and boy are they quick! Makes me appreciate your mallard shot even more!
They are fast! I'll tell you that I get more bad or OOF shots than good ones.
Keep trying, I did and I occasionally get a keeper.
Thanks for the comments.
I'm quite fond of the little chick too. I didn't think it would turn out as good as it did but I'm happy with it.
Thanks for your comments,
Have a great day!
Patrick (and Frank) -
So, the truth is out! Not only do you guys have more birds than there are in the state of Pennsylvania, but you bait them too??? Unfair!
Actually, this reminds me of a time long ago when, as a teenager, I used to go down with my father and brother to visit a great Aunt on the Eastern Shore of Maryland to shoot (the other kind) ducks and geese. It was illegal - and strictly enforced - to bait the birds. You did not want to get caught by the air patrols with a bag of corn near the river she was on. So she figured a better way. She used to feed the corn into her toilets and flush it out into the river. She had very good hunting on her property!
It's funny how perspectives change. I stopped hunting in my late teens, and you couldn't pay me enought to get me to go hunting now. "Shooting" with a camera is sooo much more satisfying! :smile: :smile: :smile:
