    Great shot. I love the contrasting black and white of the duck, and the ripple distorted reflections in the water.

    Great shot of a classic loon pose - certainly justifies having a 1200mm lens!

    Congratulations on capturing a most elusive bird. Their ability to dive and resurface hundreds of metres away makes them very difficult to photograph. The detail you have manages is superb. High in my picks.

    Great capture. Love the detail in the eye. It's fun to see these guys dive and then try and figure out where they will pop up.

Please take a look at the three opinion polls in the Forums under 'Site Talk'. They are only open for another three days. Even a vote for 'No Opinion' or 'None of the above' would be helpful. Thanks.

    I really like the way ripples in the water adds complexity to the already ornate patterns of the bird.
