Different Technique Using a Game Camera

The main reason I use game cameras is to capture pictures of deer. But lately I've wanted to try a different setup with one of my cameras. I wanted to try to get some pictures of ducks on a pond. So a couple weeks ago I positioned a camera at the water's edge at my favorite duck hunting spot to see what kind of pictures I could get. I got a memory card full of duck pictures (383 to be exact). I was pleased with the images, but I didn't take into account the direction of the sun and the lighting wasn't the best for quality pictures. Next time I will position the camera where the sun will be behind the camera to better capture the colors of the birds' plumage. Anyway, here are some of my favorites from this batch of pictures.

Nice pics. Love that last little duck...so unaware he was being photographed. I'm looking forward to seeing them when you move the camera for better light. I bet you'll get some nice ones.

Great use of a game camera, Rob. I have to say that I never would have thought to use it for birds like that. Cool stuff!
