All critters are captured under fair chase conditions Joe.

They can frig off (and usually do) whenever they like.

Just playing with you Rob :) You are so fortunate to have places that hold these ducks so close for you

Take care

Thanks for the offer. Long time since I spent anytime in Brookfield. Last time there came home with a 68 impala 427 smile.png a friend at the time I went  to university with Randy McLean found for me. He was a 70 Boss mustang nut and his father drove stock car " Baker"  ?? there real serious in those days. That was not yesterday smile.png

 

The mrs wanted me to ask you. What is the rarest duck you have ever captured a pic of 

 

Cheers

Well, some of the rarer ones include:

Redhead
Barrow’s goldeneye
Tufted duck
Eurasian wigeon
Northern shoveler

Of those, I’ve only ever seen and photographed one redhead.

Not exactly nature photography but here are a few trout patterns I've been busy tying up in anticipation of the annual mayfly hatch. These are just iPhone shots.

Nice job with the flies. The last fly with the ginger hackle would be my first choice. I always tie up at least a half dozen ginger hackle dry flies for the specs.

The wings of the flies are made of wood duck flank feathers. That’s why I always try to bag a few in October, plus they’re damn tasty! I can make about 30 sets of dry fly wings out of one mature drake. There, I guess it IS nature photography!

Interesting, Some of my best memories are fishing trout on the East river St. Mary’s with my Grandfather.
