She’s the boss! This Teal hen is always the first to come check me out and scout the area after flying in. Her partner stays and feeds within the perimeter she sets and when she calls out that it's time to get going, he comes back to her side. She is mid-call during this frame and shortly after they were heading off into the sunset.
Captured with the Canon EOS-1D Mark IV and Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS USM on May 7, 2019 at 7:37 PM. I used AI Servo AF mode and multi-segment metering. Auto WB setting.
Raw processed in DPP4. Fixed my horizon level and added some canvas in Photoshop.
