Tufted ducks

I can't wait for these lovely ducks (Aythya fuligula) to return to the local park - I tried in vain to get good shots of them 6 months ago, and by the time I got suitable equipment, they'd gone. This group was far out on the water at the RSPB reserve, but I like the colours. Three pochards and a coot can also be seen.


Canon EOS 5D mark III, Canon EF 500mm f/4L IS II USM, Canon EF Extender 1.4x III, Canon EF Extender 2x II.

1400mm, f/16, 1/400, ISO 800 (exif incorrect).
