Went for an evening paddle, and while waiting for the sunset saw some ducks with an interesting late-evening colour on everything. Shot with an SX-50 around 800mm from a kayak....

Really nice shot, Don. Cool effects on the water. :)

Just got my new 5D3 back from Canon service. On the way home, I stopped to take shots of some wild feral Moa.The Moa, or Red Junglefowl, is the ancestor of all domesticated chickens, according to DNA studies. The bird originated in Asia, likely in Thailand, where it was first domesticated. Japanese researchers have compared DNA and found that every breed of domesticated chickens descended from these Red Junglefowl which they now believe were first domesticated 8,000 years ago. The first Polynesians brought the Moa with them to Hawaii in their voyaging canoes. These feral Moa found today in Hawaii have interbred with domestic chickens. Took these photos for my wife (she loves looking at chickens/roosters).

I think Northstar might be a bit of a bird brain!  ;)

Observed, but couldn't catch it ( :(), a muskrat harassing ducks, I swear just for the fun of it -was pretty cute.

Don't have any bird shots of late as I had to vacate my stool.  ;)
