Muscovy Duck

I took Maya to the Palo Alto Baylands duck pond yesterday afternoon for a little stroll. I recognized this Muscovy Duck from last year and it seemed very tame so I approached it carefully and managed to fill the frame with the duck (on a X100 which has the field of view of a 35mm lens). It was partially cloudy yesterday too, leading to some really soft filtered light.

It is said the best camera is the one you take with you and that was true for me here. In spite of whatever shortcomings the X100 may have, it fit in my jacket pocket, so it came with me. If I didn't have the X100, I wouldn't have brought anything.

Technical: Fuji X100, f/4, 1/640s, ISO 200.
