American Wigeon's Flying South!

As the temperature falls in the late autumn the American Wigeon's, geese and other ducks start to flock together for their long journey to warmer climates.  Here you see a group of wigeon's practicing flying in groups over the lake in preparation for their departure.  I took this photograph with my Canon 7D camera and a 70-300 mm lens set at 300 mm.  The shutter speed was set at 1/800 second, the aperture was set at f5.6 and the ISO was set at 250.
