Took the boat out with the wife yesterday and of course snapped off over 500 pictures, she was nice and patient with me, and it paid off... here are a few from the boat all handheld with the D200 ~ 80-400mm AF VR lens.















CC is welcome as always.... :-)

You must have been laying down close to the water:-). Good captures with the VR.

Mike, I like the first one but (no offense please) the rest are a little hard on the eyes. Unless I knew what I was looking for and therefor already thinking what I'm going to see, they're too camouflaged. The first one stands-out more.

No offense taken whatsoever, just getting them in their natural setting vs at a Zoo makes all the difference for me. :-)

I agree 100% - natural setting is the most important.

Mike,
I like these allot! The composition is perfect for Wood ducks. The eye and distinct color markings of the subject keep it the main focus point in the pictures.
By the way, are these the grown up chicks you posted a while back?

Thanks and good question KEM, they were taken in the same bay on a large lake (Lake Minnetonka) it could very well be the same ducks, but I'd say the odd's are against it as there are many families of woodies in the area. :-)
