All in the Eye

By KingArthur
I bagged this shot a fortnight ago while enjoying an afternoon's birding forray at my favourite haunt. I was favoured with some good afternoon lighting as this adventurous duck flew in low over the sea wall offering a couple of challenging shots.

Had to be quick to nail it as it was a real scorcher the way it flew in ..... quite closer than I had anticipated too. Got a good lock on in the viewfinder and followed through much in the way as my skeet shooting in my younger days. One short burst is all I had time for ending up with this decent shot.

Viewing large is recommended to savour the detail.

Stay all safe and healthy,
Joe Smile
