A very nice portrait on this Fuegian Steamer Duck. The light was very nice here. Beautiful subtle colors, and the detail is very sharp. The backround really makes a nice contrast for the duck to stand out well.
Best regards Siggi

Good portrait of this impressive steamer duck. Well captured considering your situation, doesn't look very dangerous here, but I've heard they have anasty temper. Good composition and sharpness.

A very succesful capture indeed James, handheld with a long lens, amazing! Perfect DOF and very good colour definition. I heartily congratulate you my friend.

Another very good and interesting post from you, my friend!
This is a species i didn't know anything of and it was very interesting reading about it in your note - especially the part about the aggression...very interesting facts.
The photos itself is good, too and shows this bird very well integrated in its natural habitat.
Your skill with this long lens + TC and shooting from a boat is really terrific and gets you so in and close to all these great animals...thanks so much for sharing all that with us :)
Cheers and have a great weekend!
