@Jennybear Thanks so much Jenny. Version 1 is better for the tail but I just couldn't get past that the shot was blurry. Just barely in range.
The camera is a fashion accessory for me, like my wife's ear rings! We only go this area for 3 days and we know where we want to go so it isn't difficult to find photo opportunities.
As for watching for our neighbours, that doesn't concern me as much as another culture, that world wide, are simply out of hand for safety, respect and decency.

I like Ver. 1 as it shows the 'long tail'. You are spending a lot of time there.... or you took a lot of photos in a few days ! Well, I am guilty of that with my grizzlies ! Niagara-on-the- Lake is such a lovely place to live. Watch out that you do not get trampled by our American neighbours coming across to Canada !!!

Very good shot. Wondeful in detail and sharpness. Thank you, Ken for the comment to this image.
Greetings, Johann

There is one extra version. These were taken at the mouth of the Niagara River, Niagara on the Lake, Canada. The American border is close at this point.

While watching these ducks with a couple of people we counted almost 100 or more in 3 groups. The problem was these ducks are divers so counting is really subjective.

In the original shot, this male was actually swimming towards me and for quite a long while. Suddenly, as the head turn indicates, he spotted me and dove.

In the extra version, I anticipated where he would emerge and managed 3 quick shots. The only keeper is not clear as it was at the end of my focus range.

Should get a real camera and lens I guess.
