I managed to get quite close to these Ducks - at least close for me, about 100 feet. And was really lucky on the second picture to catch the take-off

The first picture shows the female as well as the male. I think these are actually VERY pretty ducks, in their modest way of course....:lol:

i grew up about 100 yards from the illinois river bottom swamps and i remember in the early 90s there was a gadwall population explosion, these birds would literally cover the small ponds and such in the swamp.. you would literally see hundreds of them mixed in with quite a few Widgeons and mallards of course.. quite a sight to see..

anyways, these are just lovely shots.. nice pair in the first shot and good timing on the second!
