Artist's Description

Anas platyrhynchos: Canon 7D, EF 400mm f5.6 L, ISO 250, AV: 1/2000 sec, f5.6, -2/3EV

The Mallards on the stretch of the Deschutes River flowing through Bend, Oregon are quite acclimated to humans. (This doesn’t mean they are tame. The same ducks in a different locale could prove to be unapproachable.) Because it is so easy for a photographer to get up close and personal, they provide a great opportunity to practice composition, pov, and finding ideal light. I prefer, however, to use them to improve my instinctive reflexes for flight photography. This prepares me for the missile-like flyers such as Mergansers, Buffleheads, and Goldeneyes.
