Thanks for commenting Jerry, They are hungry and people were feeding them at that time.

I like the second picture with the flying males best. Probably because around here if the ducks try and fly to me for bread the gulls beat them to the ground and stomp on them so I never get to see them fly. They are all nice shots though. I hope people keep feeding them until the weather improves at least.

Great photos, which camera are you using?

I'll send you a palm tree

Hi Happy, Thanks for commenting. The people that live close by the river are feeding them. They should be OK.

Hi Annie, thanks for the nice comments.

Every time I work in areas such as snow, open water, sky and the beach, I use aperture compensation (from 1/3 to 1 f/stop)because the camera meter gets "fooled" by the excessivebrightness. In this case, I used "scn1", snow setting, burst mode. After 5 min. it was so cold that my hands/fingers were frozen and couldn't operate the camera,thats when Iswitched to the above mentioned camera settings.

Emmanuel
