Pintail Ducks

We found this pair of Pintail Ducks while we were at the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division in Oceanville New Jersey. It started as a grey overcast day but brightened up a little before we left. They were swimming away from us but I was able to get a few photos. The featured image is cropped a little, the second I waited for the female to finally turn her head a little so it was a better image. I had wanted to do a 2 shot image stack. The first focused on the male, the second on the female, but she was too quick for me. So in this image she is a little “soft” in focus. With Photoshop it it is fairly easy to do a multi-image handheld focus stack on moving subjects, especially with long lenses.
