And there was, this young female had found the bird food that my wife had put out for the wood ducks.

So, I go and grab the camera thinking I only get so long for this. Only I forget to cancel the flash and I'm shooting through glass......Wah!!! Big surprise for me and her. Didn't scare her away though so I ran a off a few more shots with the flash off. She still has chicken scratch and seed on her big rubber nose. That's the garden shed porch in the background.

Olympus E500, 40-150 lens.

Hi Scouse: what a great shot! You probably have a lot of animals visit your backyard, being in the great Northwest.

From time to time, I have a lot of animals visiting my backyard in Florida, but they are probably different species from the ones that you have. The first shot of a gator in the waterwas taken with a tele lens obviously. The other two were taken with a point& shoot that I grabbed when I spotted a gator laying in the yard sunning himself.

They like to sun themselves in my back yard from time to time.

It's fun living where there are a lot of wild animals coming thru the back yard. We have a lot of wildlife, especially large wild birds like hawks, osprey, egrets, and great blue herons. In fact there is a pair of great blues currently raising a pair of chicks in a high nest right across the pond from my back yard. The parentsare constantly walking along the shore hunting for fish right in front of me. I keep an old Olympus C720 Ultrazoomstored on my lanai bar; it comes in handy to grab for a quick shot when various animals come by.
