don't mess with momma

    Not my usual choice of subject, but I was out testing my telephoto lens and trying to see if I want to keep it or not. I really don't shoot past 50mm much these days, but I guess it's nice to have around.

    This duck gave me the worst reaction I've ever had to a photo, animal or human. Not only did I get this "I will F*** you UP" look, but she and her buddies then decided to start following me around all slow but menacing, like in a bad teen horror movie. They actually ran me off, because I wasn't sure if she was seriously going to try and kick my ass or not. I'm guessing she was the mother duck. I didn't want to find out the hard way...

      love the silky look on the water! I've never tried the telefoto lens, what is a telephoto lens use for mostly? why don't you use anything more than a 50mm?

      Stunning capture, with great DOF, but sharpness on the head. It reminds me of this shot I took - www.flickr.com/photos/68781017@N03/9226325369/in/set-7215...
