King Eider " Male"

This shot went through my head a Million times before ever hitting the ground in Barrow.

 

It was a highlight for myself and the group, when Matthew found this pair on a freshwater pond,

Im petty sure this was one of the opportunities he was hoping for.

 

We were not disappointed.

 

This pair was completely trusting of our presence. seeing this beauty in its full breeding plumage was certainly a pinnacle of the trip for myself and others.

 

I did get the takeoff shot, however I angled myself into position that was not favorful for the direction they took off. Another party in the group got a sweet blast off shot.
