Bird Pic Of The Week

Ring-necked Duck

(Aythya collaris)

Where: Richmond, VA • Byrd Park

Notes:As the weather turns cold and the leaves drop from the trees, so change the avian species we might encounter. Winter brings the chance of water fowl. These migrants arrive farther south as the ponds in the north begin to freeze over and the tempuratures become frigid. "Ringnecks" are often the first species to arrive each fall here in the east.

The low morning light nicely shows off some of the irridescent greens and purles of this bird's dark plumage. Calm water is usually more appealing, but I especially like the shapes created in the waves. Once again, I tried to get an even line of sight to the bird; in this case shooting from my elbows at the water's edge. Water often confuses the len's auto-focus feature so I re-focused a touch after the auto-focus locked on the subject.
