Love the low angle, action, and you nailed the exposure with good details in the blacks.

This is extra nice, Mike! You captured a wonderful wing-flapping pose from a fantastic low perspective. The color and exposure could not be better – excellent image!

This is awesome Mike!! What a handsome drake. Colors and details look great too and I always love a good wing flap after a little bath. Well done
