Florida Day 1

I have been chasing Ring-necked ducks in Minnesota for a while, but they have eluded me because they are quite skittish here. Recently I got some good information on an area in Florida where these ducks spend the winter. There is something about Florida that makes many birds much more tolerant of people. So I checked the area this morning and sure enough, there they were! They were cautious, but they allowed me to get some shots. I was hoping for some calm water and it happened to be very windy. Not perfect images, but my best Ring-necked ducks images to date!
