Comment:This adult male Pacific Black Duck was part of a group aggressively chasing each other with speculums prominently displayed (mating behaviour?). The light adds to the action by highlighting the bird's breast as it rears and by and capturing the haze of water droplets as the bird vigorously flaps.
Equipment:Canon 80d; Canon EF 100-400 L Mk II zoom. 371mm, ISO400, 1/800s at f5.6, -0.33 EV.
Location:The Sanctuary Wetland in Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve (Australian Capital Territory)
