Wood Duck Swimming

After a summer of looking for this guy, I finally found him swimming at Mud Lake in Ottawa.  The wood duck is one of the most colourful ducks native to this area.  This is the male wood duck with his bright colours.  I took this photography with my Canon 7D camera and a 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set to 1/800 second, the aperture was set to f5.6 and the ISO was set to 2000 to capture this low light photo.

Just Catching Some Rays!

I found this turtle resting on a log, just catching some rays of sunlight.  He was located on the shores of Mud Lake in Ottawa, near Britannia Park.  Mud Lake is a great spot in the city of Ottawa to find all types of animals and birds.  If you want to catch the best shots, go early in the morning and you will not be disappointed.  I took this shot with my Canon 7D camera and my 400 mm lens.  The shutter speed was set for 1/640 second, the aperture was set at f6.3 and the ISO was set at 160.
