Lesser Scaup Takeoff
Focal Length: 700 mm
Shutter Speed: 1/4000 second
Action photographs of birds and waterfowl are my favorites. It is important to be ready, have your camera in continuous focus mode, and look for clues that your subject is going to take off. Also, crop your image to fit the photo, don't be constrained by aspect ratios.
