Ducks in the Snow

I went to Baker Park on Monday to take some photos. The park was covered with snow, but the paths had been shoveled and there footprints in much of the show, so I wasn't able to take beautiful snow covered landscapes. After taking a few shots that I did not think were compelling,  I saw a large group of ducks coming down the creek. There was a bridge over the creek, and I went on it to get a better view. Just as the ducks reached the bridge they  decided that they wanted to go back upstream. Many of them decided swimming against the current was a pain, so they took off and flew about 20 yards upstream. 

I followed them by walking along the bank of the creek. I took about 50 shots trying to catch the ducks in flight. I only got four or five decent shots. They were generally too quick for me. The photo below is the best that I got. A one point they all decided to get out of the water and I caught two of them about to land. It would have been great if I could have got them closer to the center of the frame.
