Ring-necked Duck

All my ducks are gone for the summer

Viewed 13 Times

This is the time of year in Southern California that I enter into the “doldrums” for bird photography. Most of the migrating birds have moved on north. Particularly noticeable by their absence are the many ducks that winter here. Now all that we have left on all the community ponds are the Mallards and Mallard Mongrels. Have just finished processing the remainder of shots from this winter on various trips to local ponds. I will wait the ducks’ return in the fall.
All of these were shot with a Canon R5, 600 mm f/4.0, handheld. Minimal cropping, small amount of vibrance added, BG darkened slightly, run through Topaz DeNoise AI.

Wow – you must have been treading in the water to get this shot of a Ring-necked Duck! You can even see the ring! Outstanding.
