Attention to Detail. HONOURABLE MENTION.

Great Northern Diver (Common Loon) Gavia immer. Cariboo Region, British Colombia, Canada. Photographer: Carolina Fraser, United States of America. Category: Attention to Detail. HONOURABLE MENTION. Photographer’s Story: ‘Common Loon chicks will usually nestle among their parents’ feathers until they are too large to fit. It was difficult to get a glimpse of the chick when it rested in the adult’s feathers. The parent’s wing fitted snugly around its young and a slight bend in the feathers was the only clue that a chick was beneath. In a brief moment lasting a few seconds the adult moved its wing to stretch and I composed this photo that I had previously envisioned just before the chick was covered again.’ Nikon D500 with Nikon 500mm f/4 lens and 1.4x converter. 700mm focal length; 1/2,000 second; f/9; ISO 1,250.
