Gawwwgous action shots.

Excellent series Brian. What a brilliant idea for a post and brother do you have the shots to make it work. If your getting these shots with your 55-250mm lens I am even more impressed. Wonderful stop action, love the water rolling off the ducks back. To top it off you give us the hysterical kicker with the ducks arse hung out to dry! Thanks for sharing these great moments!

Love that last shot -- exemplifies why I love my ducks so much! :)

Coy said...

Nice fast-shutter captures. Give as new insight to the old saying "like water running off a duck's back"

Larry said...

They sure look like they're having fun! Super shots Brian!

Dawn said...

Super! That first one is my absolute favorite!!!

Kris said...

Wow, what lens and settings are you using to freeze the water in motion like that?

heyBJK said...

Thank you for the kind comments! I appreciate it!

Kris - I used a 55-250mm zoom and try to shoot at least 1/1000 and f/8 if the lighting permits.

Birdphotographers.net has the theme this month of birds bathing. Thought you should make a contribution there if you haven't done so already.
