Weekend at the Lake

I made several trips to Lake Los Carneros this weekend.  There was quite a lot to see, especially when I stopped walking and spent some time in one place.  The only regret from the weekend is missing a chance at a close up of the Green Heron.  For some reason, it didn’t like me running down the hill while trying to get a shot of the first male Wood Duck I have ever seen there.

    Nice photos! I am a (rank) amateur wildlife photog as well, also trying to learn to sit down, shut up, be still and wait for the animals.

    What equipment are you using? Any hints for wannabe bird photographers?
