CommentUsing the electronic shutter on the Canon R5 not only fills up the memory card in a hurry ,but when reviewing the images there is nearly always a few surprises. This Willy was hunting for insects in and around a puddle of water in our back paddock and I was very pleased to have frozen the moment that the bird fanned it’s wings and caught its prey. I was also surprised to see a reflection of the bird in the water.
