[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
While in Nashville Tennessee last week visiting my daughter, I was able to capture this image of a drake Ringed-necked Duck.

Rosie and I spent a few hours at Radnor Lake hoping to get some wildlife shots, but the sightings were far and few between. We did see a few deer on the trails, but the lighting was always too harsh, so I probably will not post any of those shots.

There were quite a few flocks of ducks on the lake, but they were almost all on the other side, which is way to far for my 200MM lens.

I did managed to get this shot of a Ring-necked who had come close enough to at least try a shot. I had to crop a lot on this particular photo, so the detail isn't quite as nice as I had hoped for.

Hello Ron,
Excellent photo of this Ring-necked Duck. Even more beautiful than our Tufted Duck. The details in black and white are great. Splendid colours, also in the water. Very nice eye contact and a fine composition.
