Description

I snapped this photo during the summer of 2018 during the evening hours when the lighting was particularly favorable. I have only started experimenting with manual settings in the last year and I was practicing that day. This female mallard was standing and, at times, feeding near the water's edge on a trail I was walking around this city park. The sun was hitting her just right and I took advantage of moment to capture this.
