Waterfowl Patrol at the Head of St. Margaret's Bay

December 30, 2023

Laura and I toured the head of St. Margaret's Bay to check out the open ocean waterfowl and what opportunities and locations there are for winter waterfowl photography. The opportunities look promising. I left my big telephoto lens at home, (1200mm at 61mp) on this trip and used my walk about telephoto lens, (800mm at 25mp). I should get much better quality photos later this winter. I didn't photograph the dabbling ducks on this trip.

The photos shown herein are severe crops since the birds are diving off in deep water.
