I wish I could get a picture of these guys coming towards me. I am becoming an expert on Duck butts.:roll:

LOL, you need someone on the other side to scare 'em your way, but then you would need to add an umbrella to you equipment list.:blah:

You know, the funny thing is, I was thinking almost exactly the same thing the other day. I was trying to shoot near a small pond at a nature preserve, and every time I tried to get around the little beggars, they'd just point their behinds at me. I found it very disrespectful.:-)

Still, a great action shot given the angle.

Tom, on Point Pelee, Canada

Tom,
I think I now see the advantage of a blind. It's tough when you are confined to your vehicle. Sac. NWR has a beautiful six mile auto tour, but you have to stay in your vehicle. Except for two viewing platforms. There are two permanent blinds on the refuge but they're booked through Feb. I guess I will just have to decorate my truck and make sounds like round stem bulrush and see if then they will come towards me.:lol:
Ah, Just being there is always an invigorating experience.
