02/15/16 Hooded Mergansers/Buffleheads

Posted: March 20, 2016 in Uncategorized

I spent a few days shooting some Hooded Mergansers and Buffleheads in mid-February. Several winter on the estuary behind my house in Toms River. Some were also taken near Monmouth University. These ducks are very timid and quite a challenge to photograph.

  1. Triumphs, Ray, one after the other. Congratulations! What a great privilege to be that close to my favorite winter ducks — and o, my, the snowy one! Thank you always c

    Well done, Ray. I know those ducks are really twittery and the slightest movement scares them. Glad you had the patience to stick with it.
