      Thank you very much. Every time I go kayaking, I am always looking for something new and interesting. And when I saw it, I take pictures.

        No, I use a regular Canon 80D, but I use a waterproof bag for protection. It’s good to keep the camera protected, but sometimes when I take the camera out of this bag, I miss some very interesting shots.

      Thanks a lot, Marc. He had a very proud pose, which immediately made a strong impression on me.

    Good morning Vova, we do have one pair breeding here at the lake but even if I could fly, I could never get close enough for such a shot. Very amazing! Thank you for sharing.

        Here they sit high up in the trees and I only use my cell phone camera, so no proper zoom. One day I’ll get one (or the cell phone cams get a better zoom haha)

        I can’t complain, I’m happy with most of the results, just zooming is an issue. And you do not have to carry such an expensive camera with you around. Cell phone fits in every pocket. But yes, for the really breathtaking shots like yours you just need a really good camera.

        I have nothing against a cell phone camera. But many years ago I started with a camera, and I’m still comfortable with it. I think it’s all our habits. By the way, some cell phones, like the iPhone, are more expensive than my camera.

      Thank you very much. The caption for this photo simply reflects the posture and intent of this bird.
