Just got back from a wonderful trip to Cariboo region, BC with Connor and Jess. We got to spend really wonderful time with this Ruddy duck that put up a great show for us. I was happy to get that water splash along with that triangle created by the tail and wing position.

Thank you for your comments Dan. I was in my waders, in a pond with camera almost touching the water. I don't think I could have gone any lower.

[EDIt] - I may have mis-understood your comment - I appreciate your point of view. I was trying to center it because of the reflection...

Excellent image. Great choice of ISO to get high shutter speed to stop the action.
