Mandarin Duck (2 pics)
Posted By: tcom, 12-28-2006, 09:24 AM

Here are two pics from this morning. This mandarin duck was not easy to catch, it did not stop moving around.

Both photos have been taken hand held with the K10D and Tokina 80-400.

1/400s f/6.3 at 300.0mm

1/320s f/5.6 at 400.0mm

Comments and critiques are welcome.

Great colour and contrast.

I particularly like the first shot where the feathers look like pieces of papter cartons somehow. Like art work...

Preferably a more parallel shot would be great (I know that is almost impossible to do)

Nice shots!

Nice job

These Mandarin Ducks rarely stop moving in my experience. Good job on capturing a clean shot of this one.
