This guy was taking a quiet nap as I kept on approaching towards him. I was sitting in a country boat with the camera in handheld position. But when he became cautious, I found myself in a very weird angle from where I could get flight shots, but there wouldn't be any background. But getting a nice BG was only possible if this guy was allowed to attain a certain height. Patience paid of. 

With Nikon Gears

D500, 300mm / 2.8 & 1.4X TC

1 / 2500 s

f / 4

ISO 125

Thanks for all the inputs :-)
