19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Egyptian Goose

We were watching the birds near the Zambezi River. I was positioned with the sun behind me and some trees in front. I wanted a shot with trees to provide a soft bokah background with color instead of the plain clear sky. I think I sat there for 15-20 minutes before catching the bird in flight in the position I wanted it.
