5....this is a full crop of a couple of young Eagles. I don't know if there was anything that they were up to, but they flew around for a minute or 2 overhead chasing each other...cheers...Don

Don, nice BIF of mallards in the landing pattern! They're spot on! They look so real that Iwant to reach for the shotgun :O!! (Just kiddingof course :lol. As soon as the Rideau River gives up it's ice, I'll be out there with my trusty single barreled D80 gaugeNikon looking for ducks. :| Cheers, Dan

Thanks Roger, Dan and Donna.

Donna, getting the 2 ducks in focus in the first shot was pure luck. I was focusing on the lady mallard, and just happened to get the bonus of the male landing too. They were shot wide open. It's the only aperture I have in this climate..lol...cheers...Don
