    ...and anyone else that posts these type pics; thanks for the nudge. i found the guys in a pond located between the washington monument and lincoln memorial. these are my first, so lend advice if you choose. what i did realize is that i tightened the DOF way too much on the 300. i hoped to have a full view of the mother but only one feather was in focus :er: ...i'll get it eventually:

    the DOF is so tight that it makes the bill look detachable...then of course i started to picture this thing without a bill :lmao: ....i need to go back to work; im loosing it :confused:

    these guys seem to always have one eye on you at all times:

    caught one offguard:

    figured id throw this in since there was nowhere else to stick it. i liked the drop of water:

    as always, thanks for looking

    Wow, great photos. I looked at the first one for a long time but that third one is just so good.

    Definitely not what we're used to seeing from you...but keep it up, theses are great.

    The 4th one is my favorit. I really want to reach out and hold it. So soft and cute and fuzzy... *sigh*
