All of these shots are almost full frame.

The first two are of a tai Chi expert. He probably learned this from observing people. In the first shot his foot is holding up the wing, made clearer in the second.

These are shots of these Ducks, closely observing Chato, my (patent pending) White Balance Dog. I was always sceptical of those nature stories about Wolves attracting Ducks by their antics. No more. Chato, as wolflike a dog if ever there was one, could have been dining on Scaup if had chosen to.

Over the course of Winter, this raft has grown from a few hundred ducks to a few thousand ducks.

That's because they are "virtual Ducks."

Sorry, try reloading them, I believe everyone else can see them... ()

Dave, this Tai Chi fad has been going on for awhile on the West Coast with the Lessers and the Ruddys. Kinda annoying really ... Here's a Ruddy performing some Chi move - foot in the air with bill in chest.

And a Lesser with a foot under chin move... although it could have been some offensive hand gesture you may be familiar with in New York. :G:G

Seriously, nice sharp images of those Greaters! I like the lightening and how the focus on the center ducks pulls them out of the crowd.
