Shot earlier today down at the duck pond. A couple of ducks coming in for a landing. Not that it was much of a long flight, maybe 10 feet; odds are they could have walked the short distance just as quickly. But that's bird brains for you.

Enjoy and your comments welcomed.

That's a great looking in-flight shot of the ducks, Wendell. From the looks of this, I am surprised you got out of the house with all that snow!

Nice wing span shot of that duck Wendell - I guess all of them don't fly south for the winter.

I bet they wish they had gone to Florida or Texas with the rest of the Snow Birds.
Good clarity Wendell. I will take a glass of Cold Duck if you have the time.

People are like cameras--sometimes they lose focus.

Looks like plenty of snow, but water looked to be on the short side. Fine capture though.

Wow Wendell this is a great action photo with perfect shutter setting and focus and the colours are amazing along with the angle you caught this mallards from and they stand out superbly against the texture in he snow too

Excellent action shot, I don't blame them for flying that short distance, it's cold on the feet. Super colour and detail, excellent angle you've captured them in coming right at you
