  2. Good ones. I like the position of the duck in 1 bet but I like 2 best due to water drops.
     
  3. Really excellent, Louie. We've been seeing a few woodies around here but they are extremely shy. I guess the fact that duck hunting season runs up into early February doesn't help their attitude.

    Agreed with the accolades, thanks for nominating this thread Randy!
     
  7. The more I look at that 1st pic Louie the more impressed I am. I know a lot of this is right place right time but you delivered, many wouldn’t/couldn’t
     
  8. Gorgeous! I have yet to see a wood duck!
     
  9. Very nice, great light enough shutter speed to really freeze them, textbook!

    Oh Louie........excellent..........superb............what a sequence you got. Everytime I get within a mile of a wood duck...........they take off. Very shy little fellows.
     
  13. Stunning series, Louie! Bravo.
     
  14. Thanks very much Allan, these were sure fun to watch and get the opportunity to shoot.

    Thanks very much Dan, duck hunters not being around does help in keeping them calm. I was surprised that they pretty much stayed out in front of me long enough to get these shots.

    I most appreciate your comments Karen, thank you. Are you kidding, no way I could hand hold my 600 combo it was secured to my tripod.

    Thank you Randy very much not only for your comments, which mean a great deal to me but also for nominating this set for a featured shot.
     
  15. Quite a set Louie - really nice.
     
  16. Beautifully captured Louie, color is fantastic.
     
  17. Wow! #1 is truly over the top good. Superb photos.
     
  18. Thank you Connie.

    Appreciate your comments Dianne, thanks.

    Most appreciated Andreas, did my best on this shot and the light just happened to be to my back.

    Thanks Jeff.

    Thank you very much Dan.
