Morning in the Bosque del Apache, NM Geraint December 19, 2016 No Comments Northern Pintail ducks in the Bosque del Apache (Woods of the Apache) NWR, Socorro, NM. It’s not difficult to make a good image in the National Wildlife Refuge. These Northern Pintail ducks came out of the reeds and marsh grasses in tandem. Observing them through the lens I had a feeling they knew where they were going. I had no clue what they were about. I got to watch and enjoy the moment and create a few compositions of the scene. Reviewing the image later, I recalled if nothing else, the peacefulness of the moment when I saw the emerge from the reeds and Marsh grasses.
