Absolutely beautiful, Dan. Great low point of view, superb detail and background and the feather is wonderful.

Excellent capture of this Merganser, Dan! Light and colors are great and the feather is a nice little bonus. The detail is also superb, especially in the large image! Well done!

Love the low angle and the soft light captured here. The prey adds to this fine image.

Hi Dan,
