Everythings Ducky

Some more images from our trip to the Brigantine Division of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in Oceanville, NJ. We saw a large variety of Ducks on our visit there. Some were in large groups and others were either a pair or just single ducks swimming by. Most, as usual were farther out in the channel, but a few cooperated and swam closer by. All shot with a 400mm D.O. lens with a 1.4X teleconverter on a Canon R. The sky was very overcast when were photographing the ducks, so I did my best to brighten my Duck subjects. The featured image is a Male Northern Shoveler Duck. Always loved that green head with bright yellow eyes!

    • Hit button before finished, lol. I had returned to relook at that Shoveler shot, I wish I could have gotten closer to these ducks this winter. Very very nice!

      • Yes, it is hard to get close shots of a lot of the ducks at some of the NWR’s. But it is always fun to try!
