Really great pics. Looks like you spend a lot of time in the field.
Could you post what was used to take these photos.
And the GRAND PRIZE goes to the photograph of the ducklings in the nest with the shot shell in the foreground. It really tells a/the story.
Now ya gotta reveal: was the shot shell serendipity
Second question: Who was your decoy for the rattler pic? Your little brother?
