Last spring we created a wetland on a piece of property where I do a lot of nature photography. My landowner hired a maintainer to come in and scoop out a 100' X 150' depression about 12" deep. We didn't get water into it until around April 15 so didn't get to use it until most of the migratory ducks had left. Used it for dove hunting this winter and so couldn't feed until after dove season. This morning was my first opportunity to actually sit in one of the blinds in "winter" (it was a bit over 80 deg. by midday today). Had a flock of about 8 or 10 mottled ducks look at it several times, but I think my lens protruding from the blind spooked them (time to hang up a fake lens). Did have this one lone redhead drop in and spend about an hour swimming amongst the dekes. I think it's my first redhead to photograph.
Nothing spectacular, but it did have good color, and the light was pretty nice. Never really realized what pretty ducks they were.
