Looks like you caught the duck off guard and the fourth pic and how did you get so close to the deer...even with a 300mm. Nice pics.

Thank you James
The Deer and Geese at this Park are very used to people.
You can walk with 10 ' of them
Good for a photographer

Very nice series, I like the red-winged blackbird in the first shot!

There is a spot I pass on the way to work with some wetlands and a beaver damn I have stopped to test my wider angle lenses. Without fail by the time I am done a few of those red-winged blackbirds have gathered on nearby reeds to see what I am doing. I keep meaning to stop and take a few captures, as soon as I get my own 70-300mm sorted out I think I may try snapping a few of them.

The deer is very nice too. On the last duck I think some post processing could bring out further detail in the eye which would add to it.
