    I got out towards the end of this past week, after getting a little break with the weather. Even though we have water everywhere, a very limited variety of waterfowl was present at my wildlife refuge. Apparently the ducks and geese are spread out all over, due to the presence of ponds everywhere. I did get a variety of birds and it certainly was an enjoyable morning of trying to capture images.

    :tuAll good stuff and quite a variety. Really like the pintail, followed by the in flight of the black necked stilt. Not an easy shot.:tu
