Here's a few pictures from a recent photowalk. The ducks and goose were all congregated around the only open water on the entire lake. By now, this water should be nearly completely open for them.
The joys of f/2.8.
This lone trooper was out there when I arrived, and just started packing up as I left.
There were probably 40 or 50 ducks in an area not much bigger than a living room.
Even with my 70-300VR, getting a sharp shot was tricky.
This was the only non-duck on the water.
