Hi every one. I took a drive east on HWY 14 the other day. HWY 14 runs right along the Columbia River throw the Gorge and on my way to Stevenson Wa. There are several small lakes and most of the time I see a lot of Hawks and Eagles. But this time all I seen was this Female cinnamon teal Duck splashing around. Thanks for looking.

Hello Tom,
Looks a bit like a Shoveler. A bit...
Nicely done!

Good to see you back Tom. Can't lose a great imager as you.....and this one didn't disappoint! I have only one shot such as this in action....good eye...and perfect timing. Looks like you had settings spot on eh? So I assume you missed Sasquatch at the gorge:-) ) The concert of course.

hello Tom

superb action shot of the cinnamon teal Duck, with very fine
POV, DOF and framing, beautiful luminosity of the image,
excellent density of the colours, great sharpness and details,
