Wow, Killer Karl! Pretty awesome to get a Canvasback in flight, especially a handsome drake like this! Nice eye contact, wing position and details in this clean frame. I might move him up a little in the frame but otherwise a smoking shot for sure.

Beautiful shot Karl. I really like the red eye. Snow in the BG add to the image.

Why use Iso 100? More DOF with Iso200-800...
