Haven't posted much here lately, as I haven't seen a lot of birds around. Winter is closing in, and most of them seem to have vamoosed. But I caught these Golden Eyes the other day. They were swimming back and forth beneath a pier. Looks like the lady has lots of male attention.........cheers.........thekman.

I like the crop - Surprising amount of detail!

And I like these Ducks. They Winter in my area of Brooklyn, BUT only if it's really cold. The Scaups and Goldeneyes Winter at sea around here - But when it gets real cold, they cross the barrier islands and I get a chance to shoot them.

Thanks Dave. I just bought a new lens. Pentax da 50-200. It's not real fast, but focus seems very good and gives quite sharp results. Now I just need some birdies to shoot. thekman.
