After Breakfast

Maker's notes: 

I had been filming and photographing this duck having its breakfast for a while. When it started to swim away, it went past this log and I thought it might make for a nice photo, even though the duck isn't looking at the camera. I was at the limit of my zoom lens so it's not as sharp as I would like but it's a different composition than most duck photos.

Judges' comments: 
love the tranquil feeling; driftwood should be in focus; more room to show where duck is going; nice balance; orange on bill pulls the eye in
