Duck Duck Goose

Sometimes when we take a photo it’s just a good photo. Other times the photo is more like a message in a bottle; once you open it up, it will tell you a story filled with emotion. I suppose that is what the old adage “a picture is worth a thousand words” means.

When I was in Wisconsin in November we stopped at a wetland park to see the migratory swans. The swans had already moved on, but there were hundreds of ducks and geese. A ways down the shore I saw these three standing on a branch and knew I had to get them. I stood in the freezing wind for 20 minutes waiting for a shot of just them. After cropping I had just one stray duck to remove in Lightroom.

It’s stories like this that give us our favorite photos.
