Water World Wednesday

The ponds near our house have ducks, usually mallards, and Canada Geese.  The other day I saw this Canvasback duck diving - it was a great chance to try out the "sports" setting on my camera - rapid, continuous shots of moving objects.

I loved how you photographed it scene after scene! Pictures itself tell a story.

This was a great series--love the happy accidents when you just keep shooting and end up with some really good images.

Love these photos. I can't wait to do some birding near our house it would be fun seeing those birds coming home from winter hibernation.
