Nice work. Somebody is keeping cool out there.

Cool perspective and beautiful clarity. Sometimes the vivid mode is just perfect.

I really like the photo too. I'm using my 70-300 more recently, seems it makes good images and yours always enforces it does.

Hi Steven,
Is that duck a house pet? Seems like you were able to get really really close to it.

Great photo

Thanks Zig. No, only a dog at my house.

But I was close, and notice how clear the water is? At the local attractions here like the zoo and Busch Gardens, it's common for the wild birds like egrets, herons, and ducks to frequent the exhibits. No hunters, clean water, and plenty of food. The places don't mind, as they get extra animals for free when they come and go.

The zoo has an outdoor exhibit of South African penguins, with a swim area for them to frolic. So while I was there to photograph the penguins, from time to time there would be a duck swimming around. The ducks are a lot easier to photograph as the penguins are unbelievably fast swimmers. I could only capture the penguins when they were at rest.
