Wigeon (Anas penelope)

A couple of Wigeons (Dutch: Smient) on the River IJssel in Zutphen, Netherlands.
My father's hobby was to photograph birds in their natural habitat and I have tried it myself but usually I fail as the birds or animals are always looking away or are scared away the moment they hear the shutter. I've really a lot of respect for people having the patience to get the shot just right.

Camera: Pentax *ist DS, lens: Sigma 28-300mm - 1:3.5-6.3
