It was only the second time that I try to take photos of birds. Most of birds photos here were caught while I was trying to get something else and then a bird showed up and I had the right angle. This time I was looking for a bald eagle and all I could find were ducks, still they make good subjects. I am not happy with the results, the photos are underexposed probably because of the snow. Next time I will try spot metering for the light. Second observation, if I want to freeze the wings when the duck is flying, I definitely need to go faster than 1/250 s for speed shutter.
About to land
I am taller than you
This photo was taken on the next day and I did change the exposure setting at + 1.0
