Wood Ducks

Went out with a friend to see if the Wood Ducks arrived yet. Found one pair just sitting on a foot bridge.  We walked around in the woods to see where we would set up a blind and sit one early morning to wait for them paddling about, the next time I am free.       We also saw eagles nesting but didn’t get any good shots.  Later after the babies hatch and no fear of disturbing the nesting we will go back.  It was fun just to drive around to see what spring has brought.  Everything is still pretty brown in these parts.  I am very very out of shape for long lens technic. My hands caused a lot of vibration.  Time to get back in the swing of things.
