This is an HDR treatment. Five bracketed exposures combined in Photomatix. I was actually only about 6' away from this goose as I was shooting. Looks farther because I was maxed zoomed out on my 24-70 2.8L II. I spent 30 minutes in the water inching my up on him.And this is what was directly behind my back. This was taken 10 minutes after the previous shot but turned 180 degrees in the opposite direction.I live in Northwest Florida and this flock of Canada geese has taken up permanent residence. They've been around for several years and never go home to Canada. They gather in this same spot every night taking advantage of the free feed that is thrown out by two or three women that come here every evening with buckets of corn and bread scraps.
I love your Yellow Bellied Sapsucker. Very nice shot Jack.
Free food and no income tax. It doesn't get any better. Really nice photos

A few birds with some fish. Little buggers fly like darts and trying to catch them in flight is a pain.
