Pacing the water

By KingArthur
Shot captured last week in late evening light while out birding by the shore.

Another frame of this juvenile male Mallard bagged as it paced the water into take-off ..... all zoomed in, had to be quick and steady not to blur the shot. All in all quite pleased with the end result, and satisfied with the level of sharpness.

Viewing large draws you in closer to the action.

Action Gear -
Camera: Nikon D7500
Lens: Nikkor 200-500mm at 500mm

Wish you all a great day,
Joe Smile

Another cracking shot Joe. Perfect dof and as Isabel says the water splash and droplets add that dynamism to the image.

Excellent timing and focus Joe. From the splashes and water droplets it was a rough take off. 😉
