    Had some time this last few days to try to capture some cool looking ducks I have seen around here... they are very timid, so these are the best I could do without a hide...

    Wonderful shots! I love the one of them in flight, with the city in the background.

    AWesome as always Ray. I have seen some of those ducks at Bluffers Park..and I could not get close. As soon as I got out of the car...they would swim away.

    Ducks are almost as bad as Hawks to try and get. You did a good job and some Ducks I have never seen before. See you guys tomorrow, can't wait

    That's my fave too, the unmistakeably industrial background, with wildlife in its element as well .... if you know what I mean :)
