My Favorite Image / Hooded Merganser Running Across the Water

 

I was able to photograph this Hooded Merganser as it ran across the water gaining speed for flight at Lake Mattamuskeet Wildlife Refuge in eastern North Carolina. I had been trying to capture this action several times that day and was pretty much unsuccessful for a variety of reasons.  I was processing and cataloging my images when I saw this image with splashing and the reflection in the water which added to this action image.

Canon EOS 1D MKIII, EF 400mm F2.8 L USM lens, 1/4 Teleconverter, Gitzo Monopod
