Baby Geese, ducks and Cardinal

  1. Saw some geese crossing the road and went back and there they were with some little babies, a few Mallards were hanging out. Came back home and was surprised to see the female Cardinal perching which is unusual.

  6. These are nice, Mike. Do you typically use fill flash for pics like the last two? Also what lens are you using for these? They're so crisp!

    Very nice pictures.

    I was cutting my grass this past weekend when this beautiful male cardinal landed in a bush. By the time I ran in to get my D70 the darn thing was gone!!!! Guess I should carry it while I cut my grass.

    We were at some Friends house Saturday evening and a Mallard couple came waddling up to their back patio door and of course I didn't have my camera with me doh!!! They also have this cat with beautiful blue eyes that I would have love to snap some pictures of!!! I'm stupid for not bringing it everywhere I go!!! :roll:
