Normally I'd delete a shot like this, but recently I've seen a lot of similar things used in magazines.
You can see it's a Goosander so I thought I'd give it a whirl here.
For some strange reason it appeals to me and I'm happy to add it to my portfolio.
Of course I will return to the River Nith in Dumfries to see if I can get one that's sharp somewhere Smile

Merl it doesn't have to be sharp ( I take plenty of these Smile ) It's expressive !!!! natural motion as it is. Excellent.

Thankyou - maybe I'll try some more movement shots, goodness knows I have enough trouble getting any of them sharp Smile

The movement gives the impression of the speed of the bird. It deserves a showing for my money.
