This is a kind of image that I look forward getting frequently, because I like photographs with a minimalist aesthetic, that show not only the animal, but also the habitat and landscape in which they live. To achieve these results, I had to go out to the field several mornings in a row and hope that all the elements lined up: I needed fog, I needed the mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) to show up and I needed these birds in the exact place I wanted. Finally, on a cold winter morning, the fog hovered the waters of the Douro River and after a few hours of waiting, sitting on the ground covered in camouflage from head to toe, three ducks passed right where I had planned. Everything was perfect that day.
