Goosander Touchdown

click…click twice

A goosander (merganser) landing in Lauttasaari, Helsinki. Now is the right time to sit down on a stone with The Big Gun (500+1.4x) and shoot flying water birds. Ice is a very important element in the pics giving sense of depth and “icy” feeling.

      It is technology. Today it is sometimes easier to take sharp pictures of moving objects than still objects.

  5. What a great image! Action is so much more difficult especially at 500mm plus.
