Watching The Ring-necked Duck At The Celery Bog
I am not good at birds on the water. When you get away from the canada geese and mallards I am guessing. In fact when I saw this bird in flight coming towards me I had no idea what it was. Of course that fact did not change as the bird landed or when it swam near me. It was only when I came home and ran the photo through the Merlin app that I knew what duck this was. I really don’t know how people know all of this in the field.
Coming In For A Landing
I don’t often have position to capture a landing. These ducks flew right to me though. I love it when I am close enough to capture something. Especially when it is something that I don’t see everyday.
