Sitting pretty

I know it's not an emotion of which they are capable, but this pair of ducks seemed perfectly content, tucked up in the grass together, their work for the day just about done.

Canon 1Ds MkII, Canon 100-400mm IS USM lens, 1/2,000th sec, f/5.6, 400mm at ISO 320. Distance to subject: < 5m

    1. Hi Warren. The shot was taken a while ago, but you're right – it's nice to see some decent light after so much grey.
