Great detail considering light..... Maybe boost the exposure and highlights a little... I like the reflection as well

Saw your title "Shot a Wood Duck..." and I am glad to see you meant to say 'photographed' :)

A fine job of it to. What a perfect angle and lighting. Very nice.

That is an extremely nice capture Glenn, especially considering a 2x TC was involved. I'm very impressed!
And what can you say about Woodies....they are simply gorgeous as is yours. I'm also impressed by the DOF you achieved at f/5.6. You don't happend to remember the distance to target do you?

Yeah, well done Glenn. I always have a tough time with the whites on these guys. Easy to blow the highlights. Cloudy days definitely help. You've got a nice reflection too.

It doesn't mean you should just because you can.

That's a nice shot Glen in my neck of the woods ... Martin Mere is a really nice place and I've been there many a time in the past :) ... Keep them coming and well done.

Wow! Thanks again for the kind words folks..

I had the camera on my monopod which helped considerably. You can probably see from the slight 'bow wave' that this little guy was swimming along, so this was a slight pan, servo mode focusing and the lens was wide open. Distance to subject was about 20-25 feet I guess.


You can't erase a dream, you can only wake me up.
