Easy Peasy Duck Photography

Cambridge Maryland has a spot on Oakly Street that is famous for being an easy spot to photograph ducks. Every fall hundreds… probably thousands of photographers flock to the location to make waterfowl photos without the hassle of camo, blinds, calls and decoys. It truly is a matter of shooting “sitting ducks.” Not every photographer is going to want to invest the time and money to make a trip to Cambridge but would love an easy opportunity to make photos of ducks. If you live in eastern North Carolina there is a location that can provide you a similar experience. You aren’t likely to be photography Canvasbacks and Lesser Scaups like you would along Oakly street but if you’d be satisfied with Mallards and Coots this is a great place for you. New Bern’s Union Point Park is a popular spot for the locals to come feed and watch the ducks. Just come to the park and head down to the end near the hotel. You’ll find plenty of camera friendly ducks, coots, gulls and pigeons. And you never really know, something more exotic than a Mallard my be hanging out when you visit.
