This is SO perfect, John. However did you capture this bird taking off? V/F/FB

John Telfer replied:

Thank you Mary for your very kind compliment, vote and for favoring my photo and also FB promoting it. This was one of those right place right time moments. We had just had a 21inches of snow and it was about 15 degrees out so I went to a local park hoping to take some scenic shots of some streams with these old bridges and the snow. When I got to the park it was like nobody had been there I set my camera on the proper shutter speed and put my zoom lens on as I heard a lot of noise, (ducks and geese) as soon as I hit that snow they came flying at me and I put my camera up and captured this one and I have a similiar one called the Great Race with two mallards flying through the air with great detail also. Thank you for the compliments I appreciate it

Thanks Bruce for the kind compliment, vote and for favoring my photo. I appreciate it

Hasselt - Belgium

I love this one John, how it shows the aerodynamic'ness and 'design' of the duck ( with its beautiful layered colored feathers ). The art of nature, also brilliantly placed in the frame and outlined against the white soft background. Well seen, even if there was luck involved with you being there at the right moment, you still 'saw' the image as it is seen here, afterwards.

Description

FAA WATERCOLOR MARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON FINAL SALES
In January 2011 after New York had gotten hit by a blizzard that left the metropolitan area covered in 21 inches of snow, two days later I decided to venture out to several areas for some winter time scenic shots. I came to this one small park in Manhassett, New York located on the north shore of Long Island and took my camera and prepared to go out into the 15 degree frigid weather. I took out my camera put on my zoom lens and set it to shudder speed since I knew this park was famous for geese, ducks and mallards and with any luck I would catch some feeding. When I got out of the car, I discovered the snow had not been stepped on and my feet made a loud crunching sound which immediatley alarmed the animals of the park. I kept going over a small hill and then all of a sudden a bunch of frightened geese , ducks and mallards began to fly around. This mallard came right at me as he began to take off and I was able to capture him in full flight. With his fantastic detailed wing span and colors.
