    Ducks in the Snow

    It started snowing this morning so I went for a ride to get a few shots.

    They thought a cutout of a dog would keep the ducks and geese out of the ball feild. NOT

    HaHa! Frank's been chasing those poor old Ducks again.
    You need one of them Duck lures, then they might fly towards you and then you can shoot them.

    They see that big lens pointed at them and they take off.

    Thanks for looking

    I got the same problem with a Hawk that occasionaly rests on top of a post outside my window. I wait till he turns his back but he still knows when I open the window. Even if I go out the back door he's still long gone.

    I liked the first picture, with the snow still on his back. Cool shot...

    It goes to show you how insulated they are. They don't loose much heat.

    Thanks
