161/365 Misty Tufted Duck

Following on from the previous post and not wanting to miss the first appearance of the Osprey I moved around to the opposite side of the reservoir.  The mist was still apparent but no where as thick as it was.  I noticed a female Tufted Duck bathing in the water and knew that she would flap her wings after she had finished.  Setting up, it was just a matter of waiting.  She was fairly distance so opted for a more minimalistic approach to the image.
