Some quackers

Got a tip on eagles today and they flew the coop before I got there. Had some fun with ducks, though.

This Ruddy is my favorite.

Thanks guys. I hadn't planned on shooting ducks the other day, but I was laying on the damp and cold sandy beach waiting for eagles to show up for their feast, but that never happened. At least I came home with something. I may have to go out again and try for different species. It was quite fulfilling.

We have quite a few Northern Shovelers around here in the early spring. The first time I saw one I thought it was a mallard with a weird bill. That was quite a few years ago.

Shovelers, Bluebills and Hooded Mergansers have been the common duck around here lately as well as swans.

Nice pics. Love the colors on the Shoveler.

I don't think I've ever seen ruddy ducks in the wild, I too love your low angle shots!
