Default Wet enough for ya!?

Arriving home from church today, the missus spotted this pair of mallard ducks on the neighbors lawn (shows ya how wet it's been here because we NEVER get ducks here). I was able to get within 50 feet of them with both cameras however, the shutter noise from the Oly seemed to spook them so I got quite a few more from the HS-20. All are handheld. No time for a tripod.

As I was going through them, it dawned on me that I couldn't tell which image came from what camera! You can see all of them at http://goo.gl/lSf9D

Good shots Gary. Excellent color and contrast.

(Anyway, I think that is what I'm seeing. We got up at 4am, to leave at 5am, to driive over to the Pier at St. Pete for an Easter Sunrise service, so as I sit here at home, I'm probably only half awake!!)

I think ducks & geese are fun, we've quite a few of each that live in a private park & small lake across the street from our place. Often some wander down our streets and have pecked (knocked) on our front door. Your cameras each created mighty fine images.

Bob, it took me a while to stop laughing at that. I have to ask: so what do they say? Can I come in? I'm hungry - do you have any water plants handy? I think your landscaping needs some water features?

........it has happened a couple times, they've lived at the lake for years and more are added when 'wild ones' set down and a few don't move on. When walking around the 'pond', it is about 3-acres, it is common to be followed and we must watch for them crossing the street. We've also had mallards from the bunch fly-in to the pool, guess they just need getaway spa time.
