I really could watch these guys all day.

There were two adults last year and an offspring of about 6. This year only one adult. (over population) The youngsters are still after a year, just turning white with many brown feathers left. I will have to get some of those pics up.

So will add them to this thread.

Why do I always want to shoot the difficult bird colors.

Well, if you are anything like me, I figure I'll learn more by trying something more difficult. It's too easy to take the easy shots. What's there to learn if you do something you already know how to do? Trial by fire I suppose. Your duck is well done. White really is hard to capture and you've done well.

Leigh,

Think we are attracted to challenge and frustration...lolol

I just put added a Baby (?) from last year. I am amazed they take so long to truly mature and turn white. I will have to watch them

Then I will have 7 white ducks to try to get together. Oh noooo forget that. :>))

Thank You for the kind words, and encouragements.

Gale,

I agree with Leigh. Let someone else take the easy shots, and we'll take the challenging ones. These are both well done. Good exposure and nice and sharp. 8)

How about some more, VR, VR??

Only a little over a month 'til Merritt 2!!

Regards,

Frank

Hi Flew,

Well there is one more VR VR VR lolol 5 thousand dollars worth. OUCH

Thanks for you compliments.

I don't know why I like the second one so much. I played with it all kinds of ways and just like the looks of it for some reason. This is how it came out of the camera.

I am very excited about Merritt shoot #2. Took a week vacation off work. So that gives me 9 days off. Looking foward to that also.

Greg,

White is tough. So easy to blow. Sometimes I will hit it ok.

I am more concious of it now and take a quick test shot in the general direction of where I am going to shoot. That seems to help.

But you just can't always trust the LCD.
