Ducks and Other Flying Things - August 9, 2012

Had the opportunity after I picked my daughter up from the daycare that she goes to, to go to the park and photograph. So I grabbed my D300s and AF-S 70-200mm f/2.8 VRII G ED and went out. The ducks were extremely plentiful there today and I had a fun time there. Of course I did have to tell one lady to "Please short-leash your dog" when her playful pit-bull was eagerly trying to go after the ducks. Being a good owner, she complied immediately as soon as she was told.

There's nothing like having a wildlife area not too far away from one's home. It's always great to go and despite not seeing my favorite red winged blackbird there today, it was extremely productive.

Caption for this photo is: "There's always one in every crowd"

The ducks were definitely flying again today which was convenient as I had the right settings this time around. I really do need to check my settings before I lift lens to shoot, but sometimes you get caught up in the heat of the moment and just fire off several rounds of photos.

Saw some of the practicing for the Abbotsford International Airshow taking place and a West Jet B737 while getting ready to head home from the park

All in all, it was a great day today at Green Timbers. Flying ducks, practicing airshow warbirds and a big metal cargo-hauler bound for YVR. Got to love it.
