Whistling Duck BIF

Found this Black Bellied Whistling duck at Brazos Bend State Park, TX last weekend.   I was sitting on the bank taking shots of Green Herons fishing when this guy did a fly by.  I couldn’t find my tripod before leaving on the trip so I handheld the camera all day, which ended up being a good thing for this shot or I would have missed it.  The slow shutter speed resulted in some wing blur, which I tend to like on some of my flight shots.

Taken with Canon 7D and 100-400 lens

1/250 sec @ F 5.6, ISO 400, partial metering, flash with better beamer
