A Cape Teal regarding me with deep suspicion as I crawl towards it, inching forward with a long telephoto, at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, Slimbridge, Gloucestershire; 11 Aug 2010.

Because its in shadow, I’ve slightly brightened the white in its eye,  and I love the way this bird’s whole, slightly severe mien exudes suspicion and doubt.

D700 with 70-300 Nikkor at 300mm; 400 ISO; converted to mono with Capture NX2.




About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    And I would imagine deeply suspicious is just what you looked like crawling along the ground towards it. 🙂
    Oh, the lengths we go to for a picture. 😀
