I noticed this Male Northern Shoveler Duck swimming towards me in the early morning. I liked the warm light of the rising sun on the water, but as the Shoveler got closer it looked a little annoyed and started swimming faster. It then veered to the side and chased another duck that was behind trees & down a channel so I could not photograph more of the action going on. I was using a 400mm lens with a 2x teleconverter.
Nice one Reed.
Thanks! Appreciate that!
This head-on capture well illustrates its namesake bill. Handsome bird!
Yes! That is quite the bill! They are fun ducks to watch & photograph!
He definitely has that “set face” look! Daniel 9:3 “And I set my face unto the Lord God, to seek by prayer and supplications…” Great shot! William
Thanks William! They are interesting ducks to watch & photograph!
Now that’s a direct look! Great shot, Reed!
Thanks Donna! He did seem determined o chase the other duck!
