Teal jump

Teal (Anas crecca/Wintertaling) taking wing. It is taken from my private hide. This goes really fast, all of a sudden they jump out of the water. The advantage of spending a lot of time with ducks is that you learn to recognize the ‘fly away signs’, so that you can anticipate. The light was a bit dull, but I like the action. Weather conditions: Overcast, strong eastern wind (5 Bft); taken the chill factor into account it felt like -10°C (actual temperature was 0°C)!
