the anxious mother

This worked better than i expected, the 300mm is a heavy beast to hold and shoot handheld.

 

This mother and her 2 ducklings were swimming in the canal at southbank - the ducklings went under a path which was protected by a grille and the mother couldnt follow so she had to get out of the water and look for them, quacking anxiously.

 

I love the way her foot? is raised and her head is looking for them, this worked well for me, cropped to include her and her shadow from the morning sun.

 

Shot AV mode, f5.6@250sec, 75-300mm EFS lens
