Good duck harvest potential

Postby REM1100 » Wed Aug 20, 2008 9:43 pm

Just drove out and located a larger pond to see these young mallards in their first flight

I almost ruined the shot as I overexposed the setting and forgot to take off the skylight filter and did not take off the 1.4 Teleconverter otherwise the shot would have been sharp and crisp

The puddlers and divers are in a smaller pond and look like they have their feathers almost in and seem to be a little chubby

This early grain field is close to the ponds and will be a killing field for the opener

most of the crops are just starting to change color from green
