Winter Wildlife Photography
I've often lamented how the rain and cold kept me from nature photography at this time of year, and I've often longed for spring and summer when I can resume photographing wildflowers and invertebrates. Then Fred (AKA Anas platyrhynchos) paid us a visit. It's not everyday one gets a chance to photograph a duck indoors. Fred belongs to my daughter-in-law and he is a remarkable duck. He's spending the week with us, and I've seen him perform tricks. I never thought I'd see a duck exhibit a distinct personality, but Fred seems to understand humans and ....well, I digress.
