CommentThis image was captured just after sunrise over Herdsman Lake. Large flocks of Pacific Black Ducks roost on the north eastern side of the lake and make their way into the centre of the lake in large flocks as the sun rises. I was lucky enough to capture this particular "fall out" with the Sun just low enough not to blow out the entire images and to capture various stages of duck landing/crashing with some nice foreground reed shadows.
EquipmentCanon 7D Mark II Canon 500mm f/4L IS II USM ISO 100, f/6.3, 1/640s, 500mm, +0.0EV
LocationHerdsman Lake, Western Australia
