Gitzo 1329/Arca Swiss B1/Wimberley Sidekick


This beautiful duck was fairly plentiful at Merritt Island - enough so that it was difficult to get one on its own, rather than just among a large grouping.  You might notice a smaller aperture for this shot - this one was swimming at times with its mate, and I was trying to get a shot of the pair, and have enough depth of field to keep them both in focus.  This worked fairly well, but I haven't posted this shot here.
