Hello friends.

Even if it's been 11 months since I was not posted in TrekNature
I still want to highlight my 12th birthday in TN, I registered
on April 4, 2007 in this website where I learned a lot about
nature and improve my photography through the years.

This photo of the female mallard duck in take-off flight is taken
with my new Nikon D500 DSLR, my new camera can shoot at a
speed of up to 1/8000 seconds, it is the case with this picture.
The background snow and ice it is the one of the river.

1/8000s f/4.5 ISO1600 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).

Bonjour Asbed,

Tu as beaucoup de succès avec ta nouvelle caméra. La netteté est excellente. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du canard Colvert femelle en vol. Bonne journée.

A beautiful inflight shot with lot of detail.

Hi Asbed
Common bird in your part of the world, but outstanding result with your new camera. Sharp details.


Hi Asbed,
Congratulations for your anniversary, fantastic photo to celebrate with. Excellent timing and shutter speed, the action's perfectly frozen into the image. Great shallow depth and perfect off-centered compo, too. The improvement you've shown here during your stay on TN is breathtaking - please, if you get the time and energy, post more often if possible. Hats off for you, stunning shot, and thanks very much for your valuable contribution in the past 12 years.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Asbed,
Congratulations. Nice to see you back here. I hope to see you now and then here in the original Treknature site.
Excellent photo of this mallard in flight in fantastic sharpness and details. Perfect timing.

Nice shot of this mallard, and very different from the usual pictures in or over water - the snow must have made exposure difficult but your exposure across the entire picture is excellent.
