Mirrored or Two?

Uploaded: May 30, 2015 | Entered: May 30, 2015 01:36:19


It almost seems as if the bird is standing before a mirror but in reality you are looking at two birds!

I waited and waited untill these two Puffins 'posed' in an interesting way. And finally I could shoot my dream image of the pair.

Exif: F Number: 5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 10/5000 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 640, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 400.00 mm, Model: NIKON D300



How interesting, and I agree with your comment! Wonderful Mariette! #1619408
