Closeup of this fast swimming and often diving bird. I found this one on a short walk near my home. Not much time for composition thoughts here.

Great job shooting this with a 500. I know how hard it is to pan with one of those up close on a fast moving bird, so bravo!

i like the composition. i probably would've composed it the same way.
nice detail in the feathers and the red eye pops out nicely.

This shows off his crest nicely. I like the water droplets on his back too.

Love the glimpse of the ripple and the color of his head.
