Blue-winged Teal

May 6, 2019

This Teal and his companion were a couple of the most friendly ducks I've photographed in a while. Not that that really means much; I've been playing on hard mode all season it feels like. Thanks buds!

Captured with the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV and Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM +1.4x III on May 2, 2019 at 6:54 PM. I used AI Servo AF mode and multi-segment metering. Auto WB setting.

Raw processed in DPP4. In Photoshop I added a little bit of canvas and cloned out some bubbles, plus noise reduction, sharpening, and cropping.
