Default Duck!

Pittsburgh has been invaded by a giant rubber duck! Or rather, an art installation.

Apparently we're making the national news on occasion. You'd be amazed how crazy people are around here about this duck! Well, it is fun in a silly way.

Anyhow, I was in town the other day and snapped off a few shots. It was getting dark and I only took a few but I like them.







It was a little dark when I was there so I had to use a pretty high ISO, but that's okay. I'm not going to all quacked up about a little noise.

The feather detail is really nice.

Haha, thanks. Thanks everyone. I guess I should show off my PP skills and post my incredble "photo-illustration" where I used MS paint to draw evil eyebrows onto him.

I'll never doubt the power for m43 to photograph birds again--but I'll start to worry if I ever have an opportunity for "Birds in Flight" shots with this particular species.
