Shot at Mud Lake in Ottawa on a mini-gtg with Tracey, aka [user]Enlightened[/user]. We shot a lot that day but during a chilly hour or so at ML, saw a possessive Mallard drake making life miserable for everyone. This was one of the other ducks and drakes foolish enough to get too close, booting it out of there!

Perfect capture, brilliant sharpness on the head!
I also really like watching flying bird's feet, how tightly they pack them. :-)
