Wood Duck

Not your classic Wood Duck pose

Viewed 13 Times

Wood Ducks are usually one of the stars of any trip to Santee Lakes near San Diego, and this morning was no exception. Generally one of the problems you face at Santee, is too many ducks. Difficult to get one isolated for a photo. This male offered a little different pose for me, the “over the shoulder” look. Shot with a Canon R5, 100-500 mm lens ((at 343mm), 1/1250 SS, ISO 2000, EC of 0. Handheld. Processed in PS with shadows on bird brought up significantly (I underexposed bird about 1 stop-a goof on my part), whites on bird’s face brought down significantly (about 1 stop), cropped from L and bottom slightly.
