Power flight



Mr Drake flying at speed over the ice in the pond at St Stephen's Green, Dublin.


I took a series of shots from the bridge over the pond as this duck headed straight for me. The focus on this one seems to be the best.


He came so close that he went out of the focal range of my lens, but he went UNDER the bridge I was standing on.
