Default Guy Ducks

From the last three days. Good light sometimes, bad light others, all FZ150 with TCON-17.

Purely crummy, but I like it because in this one shot are four different species of male ducks. Red-breasted and Common Mergansers, Common Goldeneye, and Bufflehead.

All are nice, but the mallard and merganser are very beautiful, with great detail. The BIF shot is amazing. Well done, Steve!

Thanks Gordy and Raghu. I am glad we have some photogenic ducks here, and that even in Winter the sun shines now and then.

Nice, looks like the birds are enjoying having the open water from the mild winter this year.

Great shots, and what beautiful birds! Love their "hair" in the last two shot.
