Default A few from this weekend

I have been out to this location almost every day for the last week. There have been several Eurasian wigeon hanging around. I decided to get low and shoot at eye level yesterday. Here are a few of the results.
Thanks for looking and all comments are appreciated.

Eurasian wigeon. This guy was not shy at all. He swam back and forth in front of me all morning.

Yep. On the ground. I found an old 1/2 inch foam backpacking mat a few years back that was left in the parking lot of the refuge. I have a right angle eye-piece that I attach to my camera and it lets me get really low.
I am still considering getting a kayak.
