[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
“Touchdown” is the name of this photo taken today in scenic Bowring Park. The object of this shoot was to capture birds in motion and this male mallard duck landing was a perfect opportunity.
Shooting at 6.5 frames per second, and a fast shutter speed, this capture was possible. The angles of the wings play a very important part in the landing.
His colors are magnificent!
The photograph was cropped, level adjusted, and saved for the web.
