Bird Pic Of The Week

Mallard (female)

(Anas platyrhynchos)

Where: Chincoteague, VA • Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge

Notes: This shot came as a pleasant surprise as we braved the swarms of summer mosquitoes at the refuge. We were standing along the ditch across from the Tom's Cove Visitors Center when this charming group came swimming from around the corner, heading in our direction. I had to reset my camera quickly in order to get enough depth of field to try and get the whole group in focus. The next challenge was to get as many individuals as possible with their heads up, in profile and not overlapping. The best I was able to get was six out of the eight ducks, but I am pleased with this group image overall. The hen has a protective, overseer sort of look about her and I like the relatively low angle the photograph was taken from.
