First time out with the DA*50-135mm. Came upon some Wood Duck drakes while stalking along a beaver pond. Didn't see any hens, must be sitting on eggs in their wood cavity nests usually in alder trees here.

Thanks, moving slowly & good camoflage can help make up for a shorter focal length

Thanks, he swam right by at less than 20yrds away as I got 12 shots of him. he never did realize I was there, the quiet shutter & AF helped a lot.
