    Thanks (my bad grammar not withstanding). I used -2/3 exposure compensation and looking at the photo it appears I could have gone to -1 or even -4/3. White feathers don't exactly photograph well... The shadows help on the neck but not on the wings. Of course, not having to crop the middle 1.5 MP from my image would have been nice too...

    Recent trip

    Here are a couple of red-breasted and hooded merganzers from the other day. Rare that I can get this close to them.

    Thanks Pat....Parker River NWR is right on the ocean. It is actually a barrier island between Parker river and the Atlantic. So a combination of the proximity to the ocean and the fact that it had just finished raining (I think they are drying themselves in the pics) meant that there were only patches of snow....of course, I have ~6-8 in still at my house.
