Who said mid-day sun was bad for photography?

Sometimes the light is perfect. In this case the lighting is like one of those portrait set-ups where you try to focus the spotlight on the face. I find that the best photographs of animals occur when they turn their head into the light, you get a sharp portrait and the eyes are just right. I took a series shots of this duck but in the others the light and the duck’s posture was nothing like this. The midday sun is often said to be the worst time to take a photograph. In those conditions this is one of the techniques I use, waiting for the head of my subject to turn into the light.
