This dark chocolate coloured ducks are extremely shy. Nice close shots are only possible with heavy duty telephoto lenses. They will always tend to take off when approached. But owing to their colour they are always interesting subjects for photography.


Shot with Nikon D500 + Nikon 300 mm f/4 ( Non VR ) + 1.4X TC

1 / 1600s

f / 7.1

ISO 640

Biru, another great takeoff shot revealing nice habitat in the background. I like how the reflections in the water almost make it look like habitat. The trailing water droplets are a treat. Excellent image.
