Behind The Lens

Had some bread with me, and wish to photograph some of the birds on the park lake nearby to where I live, but there was this little duckling that was very hungry, so I laid flat down on the ground and took a shoot.
Around 3PM late August last year this shot was made.
Was lucky with the light, but had to lay me flat down to be able to get the duckling just right - sometimes you get wet and dirty :-)
Used my brand new Nikon AF-S 80–400mm f/4.5-5.6 hand-held flat on the ground, and was able to get close that way - other equipment was bread :-)
Just wanted to take some bird shots, as this was very new for me, but no birds in the sky was shoot.
Lightroom 6 was the tool behind this. Cropped, lightened up the right place, and a bit of sharpness.
In my camera bag
The Nikon D750 and Tamron 24-70MM, as I like to travel relative light. Almost never have my Nikon 105mm with me, and not very often the Nikon AF-S 80–400mm
When taking pictures of animals, then always have slow movements so the animals won´t be scared away, and maybe have food with you - animals love food ;-)
