Favorite Birds & Ducks

Brand new member here!

I wanted to share some of my favorite bird and duck photos with you. I prefer portrait style captures whenever possible and I use a collection of superzoom cameras to accomplish this. All of my photos were taken hand-held and have not been cropped. I especially enjoy the effect side-lighting has on my subjects so shooting during early morning or late afternoon works best for me. I use Photoshop Elements 12 and Topaz Labs DeNoise software to post-process my images.

I hope you enjoy these photos. Thanks for looking!

Great sharpness and feather detail. I wouldn't mind you posting them a bit bigger.

Nice series overall, but for me #5 takes the cake :thumbup:
