On occasion I will photograph #wildlife. I do not consider myself a wildlife photographer, but rather a #nature photographer.
Some people ask why, the simple reason for me is that I do not go out with the intent to photograph wildlife. Here and there there is an exception, typically in the south.
Photographing birds de-stresses me and I often find myself pulling off to do just that during long drives between places.
This #mallard was photographed on a small pond on the coast of #Massachusetts. I had a 70-400 on my camera and he came swimming right up to me. When his head was perfectly in line, I grabbed the shot.
