The area i live in is a bit short on nature and wildlife, but with a generous supply of new buildings and construction sites. It’s not a bad place to live. However, it’s not what I’m used to and not really something I prefer. There are new recreational areas being developed though, which is nice. In one of these areas, there’s plenty of water surrounded by bushes. As you could imagine, this attracts birds. Mostly ducks and geese.

So here are a few ducks, photographed with my Pentax DA 55-300. It was mostly used on 300mm. A lot of people feed the birds here, so they are pretty used to human contact. A bit too much so even. Standing still for to long will attract them and they can get pretty physical at times.

I’m trying to get better at capturing birds in motion, but most of my decent photos were of stationary subjects.
