Pochards and a Tufted Duck in Race


I went out today to look for something to shoot.  No, nothing. I decided to take a pic from roughly one year ago. Suomenoja, Espoo, Finland.

      Thanks for your nice comment. i’m a fly fisherman, too. Usually I say, that it is just normal, that you do not get any fish. But when you grab your camera, you will always get pics. Not this time.

        That’s what they call “Murphy’s Law” 🙂

  4. This is a really nice shot. It’s hard to catch ducks taking off. I have been casually photographing them for many years and don’t have anything as spectacular as your shot.

      We have a small pond, little more than half kilometer wide, where these ducks either stay for a while or nest. There is a fairly big black-headed gull colony protecting ducks. There is rather easy to shoot these birds.
