    Yes Joe, we have lots of them, mostly around water. They need to dive for food !!!

    Fantastic focus on the eyes! Especially at 500mm that's amazing! Great expression too!

    Very interesting shot Alfred. Thanks for sharing. Btw, you can make the colour slightly more richer and sharpen a little especially its eye.

    Very nice. Congrats on nailing focus on the eyes and not the end of the bill. Love the highlights around the eyes.

    That's the best angle to show the "double crests": beautifully captured.
