I was re sizing some more pictures from my outing with the new teleconverter and thought I would post a couple more examples.

I liked the other pictures of the eagle and the geese, but this one doesn't look real the ducks look off. Is that an effect of the teleconverter?

I know what you mean. I don't think it's the converter because many of the other pictures I have taken of Mallards look artificial. I will post another picture of a Mallard and a Cinnamon Teal and you can see that the Teal looks pretty good but the Mallard has that artificial look. I dunno??

I can see the difference. Maybe it has something to do with all of the lines, like around the neck and the wing. Nature doesn't usually look that delineated.

i dunno either... could be the colors, too. the iridescence of the head sometimes looks artificial, and the feathers almost look waxy. in this shot, the drake looks almost like a decoy, but the hen with him seems to look fine.

Exactly!
Nature is strange.

Hey, did you ever notice those little black tail feathers that curl up? I just noticed those about two days ago. I have been looking at Mallards for a long time. Usually I am pretty observant about those things. I must be getting old.

it's only the drakes that have those curly tail feathers. when i was growing up my parents always kept a pair of ducks, just plain ol' white barnyard ones, and the drakes always had a curly tail feather or two...
