Loons at Dusk
Lens: D-FA 150-450 Camera: K-1 Photo Location: Liberty, maine ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F5.6

Loon, in shade with backlighting caused by the sunlight hitting the lake in the background. @330mm. Hard to bring out the red eyes of the loons in these conditions. Needed a flash with a fresnel attachment. Although they were close enough to be in range if the flash had a 300mm+ setting.

Original is over 5kpx long if you click through.
