American Wigeon

Another migratory duck

Viewed 8 Times

Another Santee Lakes bird. This is a less common migratory duck that was at Santee Lakes last Saturday, an American Wigeon. This duck has been difficult for me in the past to capture the green and cream head of the male. I did not do much better here. Shot with a Canon R5, 100-500 mm at 423 mm, SS 1/1000, F/8.0, ISO 2000, EC -0.7 (to avoid blowing out the whites on the body and blue on the beak). Little processing in PS; duck slightly brightened and increase saturation slightly.

thanks for including your thinking about lowering the EC for the female wigeon. Something to remember.
