Some of the photos I managed were either planned or happened by accident. In the case of the Scaup, I was actually trying to photograph the Merganser when the Scaup decided to take flight. Not very good photos but I like the effect. The Canvasback coming in for a landing, there was a pole to the left of the duck and I thought it got in the way of me capturing the flight in. Also not a good photo but I got it.
The rest of these were the planned photos. I had time to focus and shoot.

I may not have seen Eagles that day at the foot of Southfield but the ducks were a pleasure to see and photograph.
