PIC OF THE WEEK: 06/04/12 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2012 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Blue-winged Teal

(Anas discors)

Where: Christmas, FL • Orlando Wetlands Park

Notes: In the past I did not have a great interest in flight shots, however I'd take a shot or two when it was right in front of me. Maybe the reason for that was inexperience or the lack of a productive technique. Thus, I was not getting the best results either. But a trip to Florida this past winter changed all that. After following a few suggestions from a hired guide, I managed to capture a few decent images. Since then it has taken practice, patience, knowledge of the subject, observation of repetitive habits and most of all luck! Several of these ducks had been moving from one pond to another, crossing the road at about the same place each time. I sat still in a position a few yards back, put the sun to my back and waited. Sure enough, they repeated that puddle-jump a time or two more and I was ready. I ended up with several decent shots to chose from, but I like the colorful, soft background in this one the best.
