Spent sunday morning walking, not the greatest weather. On my way back I decided to take a slight detour and see if there was anything interesting in the canal. Goosanders, a load of them and obviously feeling the spring in their wings already.
I spent at least 15 minutes watching this, started out with 5 males, 3 females but the group got larger.
I like this shot for the composition, the exposure is decent but I see also what's wrong with it, mainly the noise.
Now I wondering.. am I being too hard on myself? Birding is tricky enough and this is as good as it's going to get in a somewhat shaded canal with a solid overcast sky.
