Ruddy shellduck, female
This is a very rare visitor. It is actually the first time I have seen one. I suspect it is a runaway from a duck farm from somewhere south of here though. But a very beautiful duck it is.

Very impressive shot and a lovely bird.  I've never seen one of these before and you've captured it's beauty perfectly.

Float tubes - thanks guys  - was thinking an inflatable boat but they are much larger and heavier so this may be a very handy alternative.  Here's a good article: http://flyfish-edmonton.webs.com/floattubing.htm

I'd still be pretty worried about losing my gear. If I had some kind of floating stand to put the camera on...something very stable that couldn't be swamped, then I might feel safer...but even with a float tube, if I'm just holding my gear.... *shudder*
It's funny you guys are talking about waders and float tubes and your concern is losing your gear.  I worry about losing my legs to the friendly sharks and alligators where I shoot ;D:



And to return the thread to it's normal subject again, here's a Common Grackle:

Tufted duck
This is an example for everyone who believe the 600 f4L IS II combined with the 2xIII extender is not sharp enough. This image is cropped to about 50% of the full image size. Photographed in light rain.

Lovely shot Eldar :)
