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.

  3. The intense blue – and your patience in getting the duck to be just right – really nice shot.
    I tried some bird photography this weekend – blurry and fuzzy is about the best it got..

  5. Good tip… love the ripples that frame your subject. They’re like parentheses empathizing it.
