Really great stuff! How about posting the tech info? Tell us a bit more about how you shot the photos.
Photos look like you were right at water level. Were you shooting from a floating blind or do you have a pit blind at water's edge?
We are in the process of constructing a small wetland (100'X150') specifically to be a photo site. The main body of the wetland is going to be about 12" deep with about a 20 to 1 slope from the edge to provide good wading water for small shore birds. Am installing two 8X16 foot sunken blinds about 5' from the edge, one facing west for morning photography and one facing east for the afternoon. I can hardly wait to get it finished. It will, of course take a year or two for the vegetation community to mature (at first it will just be a shallow pond that should be good for reflections) .

Any doctrine that weakens personal responsibility for judgment and for action helps create the attitudes that welcome and support the totalitarian state.

Excellent! Would also like to hear more details of photos, how they were taken & where.
Excellent, still waist deep in snow up here, last year this time I had already shot 2000 frames of spring waterfowl, I'm thinking this late spring and lots of snow we have will make it a banner year for photo opportunities here in MN and a trip to ND... Keep them coming. Is it the 300 F/4 or the 300 2.8?? I have the 300 f/4 but it's a little short at times. If I can time it right with the migration and weather I am planning on taking a week off and renting a 500mm.
Dang it man now you got me craving duck kabobs
Seriously though some great pictures. Thanks for sharing.
