Default Some Ducks of My Own (not wooden) - handheld Sigma 50-500

Found a few ducks freezing on the dock and got a few worthwhile efforts with the Bigma handheld. The two walking ones together made it look like a Duck Dance to me, but not so much here.

I had a hard time deciding on the cropping of the last one (splash-in) for best overall effect. If anyone's interested in suggesting something better, I can go back and put up a small version of the original for cropping suggestions. I tried 3 versions and ended with the one you see here (last shot in order).

Beautiful pictures! I LOVE the last one! The water is so .. sharp!!! (is that an oxymoron?) I like it the way it is, and think it is beautiful and natural without editing! :-D

Great shots. I especially like the details in the feathers of #3 and the sheet of water in #4.
