Challenge: Free Study 2010-07 (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
Location: Ottawa River Parkway
Date: Jul 5, 2010
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/2000
Galleries: Birds
Date Uploaded: Jul 27, 2010

Found this little guy, down by the Ottawa River. Camera was handheld with an attached rifle support and panned with subject. A high shutter speed was used, to trap the movement. It was early in the morning, which gave really nice light. Yeah, getting up early can be so worth it! Predicting a 6 or so.

Great shot! Super look, reflection, poise and water drop. Commenters Avg 8.0833. Pity the majority don't appreciate the level of skill, effort, catchlight, cost and difficulty such work entails. That 400mm f/5.6 looks like a good piece of glass too.

This would've nailed the "Baby Animals" challenge going on now. Very cute!
Perfect reflection and stop-action. Top 10 for sure.
