Thanks for watching my BLOG !

 

Today, Christmas Eve day, I drove by the Boxley Mill Pond and saw a pair of Wood Ducks, and was only able to photograph the male using a Canon 7D and a Canon EF 300L IS f/2.8 Lens with a 1.4 TC yielding 420mm on the 7D’s crop sensor or 672mm of magnification on this gloomy day.

This mated pair working along a small creek which flows into the Little Buffalo River yesterday prior to the rains – they ate about 6-8 frogs. Fun to watch them to work.
