View Full Version : New guy. Testing the waters with a duck.

Just wanted to say hi.
My name is Liam hunter. I have lived and worked the Canadian bush my whole life.
Photography grew, for me, as a way to prove to people what I had seen. When I thought they wouldn't believe.
I have a wild duck that I call my pet. Her name is clarko. Here is a shot of one of little ones from a month or so ago.
This is my first posting. So be generous. Hahah.

Hi Hunter and welcome to the forum!
This is cute shot and I'll be generous :)
Your timing was good to capture this chick eating, but the entire photo is blurry. It may be because it was too big (greater than 275k) when it was uploaded to our forum and our forum software compressed it. Is the original file sharp? If it is not, that would be the first thing I'd comment on. Hope that helps - Marko

Welcome aboard Hunter, and a very cute shot for sure. Albeit a little blurry, but cute nonetheless.
BTW, you have a PM.

Welcome to the forum, Hunter. This is a very cute little creature and I look forward to seeing more of natures wonders through your eyes. :)

Welcome, Hunter. So will you follow this one with another duck picture, then a goose picture? :angel:

I've said it before ... and I'll say it again ... you haven't lived until you've held a baby duckling in your hands. It's the closest thing I can think of to holding a new born baby's sigh :)

Love the timing and the whole duckling eating flower thing as well. Never seen that before.
