[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the partener of the duck I posted the other day The Red-Crested Pochard seen here on Lake Zurich . The only difference between the way I shot this was that I used maximum power on the in built flash to try and light her against the very strong day light. for more details about the species have a look at the RSPB web site.
