11/11/2010: Black-bellied Whistling Duck!

Okay…so I traveled all day yesterday. 4 airports, 3 planes, 2 cars, etc. etc. So, clearly though I am now in Harlingen TX in the heart of the birdy Rio Grande Valley, I have not had a chance to take any pics. I am actually, while you read this, out leading a field trip to one of the “Secret Jewels” of the Valley…and hopefully taking lots of pictures.

This Black-bellied Whistling Duck at Edinburg Wetlands World Birding Center was digiscoped with a Sony DSLR and an old Minolta MD 45mm pancake lens behind the old 20x eyepiece on the ZEISS Diascope 85FL two years ago.

Light processing in Lightroom.
