    Saturday morning I started off at Bombay Hook to very overcast skies and a lack of waterfowl due to the deep freeze and skating rinks as ponds. I continued to Port Mahon DE and captured a few shore bird images and then to the Delaware coast and dunes looking for Snowy Owls. I found two Snowy's but could not get the camera up fast enough or had no access to get a decent image but I enjoyed seeing them. I then met a friend at Oakley on the Choptank for some decent Duck Portraits.

    Enjoy!

    Great portrait shots dizzy, the only thing seen on a few of em' is a bit of softness maybe from camera shake. That first can shot is my fave, also like the Scaup.. Okay I like em all.:sp
