Once again, an unusual duck pose. I am not really sure what this duck was doing with his head and feet turned to the side. It looks like he was doing some sort of dance.
You will notice that the slow shutter speed caused a good deal of motion blur in the wings. The wide aperture also caused a very shallow depth of field, only the head of the duck is sharply in focus, but this image still catches my eye every time I see it.
