[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hello again everyone,
Just got back from Ireland, a week of rain :(, so I had to go into previous photos to get this one of a smew taken at Pen Y Ffrith farm. This was the one I like mast with the composition, reflection and decent exposure. Was very hard to get correct exposure on this duck but I hope I got it right.
Hope you enjoy. Sion
