Inspirational... I know where a bunch of ducks are hanging out so I think I will go play with them tomorrow.

Did you use a flash?

Nope. Was lucky - the sun was not completely behind the clouds at that moment.

Marsh Harrier, Somerset, UK

One of the least widespread birds of prey in the UK, and has been a subject of some research for myself in the last few years. First shot of the harrier worth sharing for myself, if mostly for the lighting.
