Really nice, Herb. I think, in some ways even nicer than your raptors. BTW, have you ever noticed that ducks always look like they're smiling?

Thanks for the comments Larry

Great shots, you captured the colors and expressions really well. I'm curious, did you process the images at their original EV and pull the shadows/blacks up a lot or increase the exposure in post? There's seems to be excessive noise in the photos of the drake(s) for shooting at ISO 400-500. For me the noise detracts from the image quality every so slightly. My apologies if the criticism is unsolicited, the photos are excellent despite my nitpicking.

...edit for clarity

Super work Herb,

You can use a Frisbee and done even need a head.

Morris


Thanks Morris. I doubt I'd want to depend on a frisbee for support of my expensive equipment. I don't see any advantage of a frisbee, the edge is low, its flexible and it won't hold a rig upright without a bullhead ?

wow amazing detail, but that iphone is kinda noisy at 80 ISO


Thanks, I don't think the iphone is in the same caliber as a mark IV and 500 L lens combo.

Well done, or should I say 'done well'
