Picture of the Week – Quebec Cottage Life

It’s certainly cottage season and this week’s picture was taken by one of our Aeroplan Employees, at lac Ludger in Lantier, Quebec.

As he was sitting outside his cottage, reading a book, he saw the mallard land on the lake, so he ran for the camera.  Once he got back to take the first shot, the mallard decided to take off.  David tells us “Getting the timing right like that is as likely for me as winning the lottery.”  

 Are those amazing colors, or what?

    Capturing wildlife photos at just the right time is often a challenge, but you nailed it! Great shot! I have been chasing ducks and loons with my kayak and camera for ages. Have had some luck over the years – other times, they have taunted me for hours! I haven’t got too many as the ducks have just started to take off like your shot, but have a few favourites from kayaking adventures: http://anitamacphotos.wordpress.com/2011/10/11/ducks-on-the-water/
