Showing Off

By KingArthur
An archived shot captured in low evening light last April while out birding by the shore.

I was monitoring this fine Mallard drake taking a good preen out over the creek, and released the shutter just as it broke into a flutter, making quite a show off of himself ..... quite pleased with this action frame.

Viewing large looks better.

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

Have a great day,
Joe Smile
