Hooded Merganser Feeding - S.W. Florida

Here is one from a few days ago. I've been photographing these guys for two weeks now with great success.

Canon 1D MKIV, Canon 800mm L @ f/8, 1/1250 sec, ISO 640 in Manual mode.

Thanks!

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.
