Very nice capture of this handsome duck Yves. First encounters like this are always special and you got a great shot of him too.

Yves Langlois

Thank you so much Heather.

Debra Plett

Awesome Yves, I am glad you had that special and exciting moment. It is a very nice looking duck. The osprey arrived back the other day I was out trying to get a few pictures of them today.

Yves Langlois

Thank you so much Debra. It will be nice to see your photos of the osprey family.

Jane LeBlanc

A 'lifer' is always exciting. Well done, Yves.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Jane.

Clifford Dupuis

Congrats Yves on your first encounter. Well done the excitement is always so awesome

Yves Langlois

Thanks Clifford. Few excitements in the season keeps the photographer happy.

Proud to present that shot. Conditions of shooting were not perfect but it is the excitement of the first encounter with that kind of duck. The pair landed on the very far side of the marsh. The way they fly and the pale colours suggest a first encounter kind of duck. I was excited. By the time I got ready to shoot they were moving away from one another and already too far to have both on a shot.
