    One of the local ponds here in Winter Park. Snuck up on these Wood Ducks and waited for them to all settle back in. Patience paid off.......

    Number your pics...please (makes C&C easier).

    Great series, but #4 is definitely my favorite. We get Wood Ducks in these parts, but they are very difficult to catch.....it's always gratifying when your patience pays off.

    These are breathtaking! When I opened it and saw the first closeup, my jaw dropped.


    My faves are 4 and 1 (not that there's anything wrong with the others).

    agreed... #4 is the winner. woodies can indeed be difficult to get close to - they're often shy and don't like to let people near. what lens did you use for these?

    Spectacular shots, how long did you have to wait before they started getting closer to you?
