| p.1 #1 · Black-Bellied Whistling Duck |
I saw some Whistling Ducks at the pond in our apartment complex (never seen them before there), so I went out to see if I could get some shots of them. For the first 30 or so minutes, I got some nice images of two of them wading in the water. Then I heard a third one coming in. I quickly enabled auto ISO (which I have set to a minimum SS of 1/1250" or ISO1600, whichever it hits first) to freeze the motion and I fired off about 10 shots before it landed. Only a couple were in focus, and the one in best focus had a bad background (an apartment window). Here is my favorite.
