COMMENTS: Shoot over the Sacalaia lake (Pike lake). Sacalaia is a natural reserve. More info here.
It was pretty difficult to shoot this, because this duck was far. The reed surface on the lake has like 10 meters from the lake banks and 2 meters tall. so i shoot this from a hill. i think this duck was like 50m away. this is a 85% crop.
