The picture of this Harlequin Duck (male) was taken at the Barnegat Lighthouse in New Jersey. The picture of this male Harlequin Duck was taken with the CANON EOS7D and the CANON 100-400mm lens and the CANON 580EXII flash.
I took this picture from a jetty that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean where there were strong currents and breaking waves. It was a bit challenging for me to get up onto the jetty with all my equipment and then get set to to take this picture before the birds moved on. But well worth the ordeal to capture such a lovely bird.
