081/365 Pochard against sunset

It is difficult to get sharp images of flying birds against sunsets purely due to the low light levels available. Pushing the camera ISO to 1000 I managed to get 1/1000th sec to get these Pochard silhouetted against a colourful sky.

Pochard, Aythya ferina, Norfolk, November, 2010.
