Mallard duck and killdeer in the rain

I took these photos this weekend of a mallard duck and a killdeer in the rain. The killdeer was in my yard when I drove in the driveway, so I turned off the engine and shot through the open window, resting the camera on my arm. Vehicles make great bird blinds sometimes! I used a Nikon TC-20E III 2x teleconverter on my 70-200mm f/2.8 VR II lens and shot these at 400mm, f/5.6.
