You are so lucky to get this beauty close enough to shoot, Karl - and you really made the most of your opportunity! Perfect angle to show that striking red throat and eye to match. Great shot!

So nice of him to be in the lovely water posing for you too! Lovely head angle on this, the reds just pop off the page.

Very nice swimming motion captured here, with the soft wake. The red eye and throat, set the image off very well, Karl.

Got a proper result there Karl. Well done and marvellous luck it was still there. Super shot and head angle to show that lovely throat.
Make your life spectacular!

nice position and well taken to see the red throat with the reflection on the water.

Good for you to go back and be rewarded. Outstanding angle and love the texture of the head and neck feathers as well as the great looking water that shows him off so nicely. Terrific.
