Sony HX1---Digital Photo Camera. This beautiful Wood Duck was in the Eugene Millrace, late in the day, with a limited light level in this shaded area. I was pleased by how well the HX1 showed his colors under these conditions and how it held a tight autofocus, even though he was obscured frequently by intersecting vines and leaves. I used my steadymount rig, which was necessary to get this scene with full zoom of 640mm.

This drake seemed interested in what I was doing lurking in the shadows and kept swimming back and forth, to get a better look at me.
