The weather here is in the teens right now with ice covering everything. The bird feeders are very busy and I might try to force myself away from the fire indoors to the bone chilling weather outside and see if I can get some shots. Anyway, here is another image of a Brant taken last week at Sachuest Point NWR. I singled out one bird from the group and waited for a wave to raise it up to eye level. This is probably the best image I got of a Brant on the trip. I blurred the background just a bit here to try and make the bird stand out a little better.

  1. Nicely done getting the bird riding the top of the wave. I've never been lucky enough to photograph Brant before.
