"The wood duck is a small duck just slightly bigger than a pigeon that nests in trees. They are also a beautiful species with their flashy colors. Laying at water level, I watched these ducks swimming and interacting in a pond. I watched and waited to photograph the birds in action. After taking a bath or preening their feathers, they almost always flap the wings like this male duck to shake off water and stretch. This is one of my favorite poses!" #MyCanonStory Photo Credit: @jessicakirste Camera: #Canon EOS 7D Mark II Lens: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Aperture: f/9 ISO: 1000 Shutter Speed: 1/2000 sec Focal Length: 400mm

"I convinced two of my best friends to drive 5 hours to Yosemite. We arrived just in time to catch this beautiful sunrise. Moments like this, spent with people I love, are worth more then all the beauty sleep in the world! It was a truly special trip I know I’ll never forget!" #MyCanonStory Photo Credit: @Alexahope Camera: #Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Aperture: f/11 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 10 sec Focal Length: 105mm

"Las Vegas is mostly known for its round-the-clock entertainment, bustling city streets, and the sounds of slot machines. Outside the busy strip there is a beautiful landscape where photographers, like myself, can capture brilliant images day in and day out. Out and about at Red Rock Canyon today I was truly fortunate to witness this peacock with his feathers in full bloom. It was truly an amazing moment to compose on my Canon camera." #MyCanonStory Photo Credit: @IsaacMBean Camera: #Canon EOS 5D Mark IV Lens: Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Aperture: f/2.8 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/100 sec Focal Length: 200mm

"Couple of my friends and I took a trip to Colorado (Rocky Mountains) to capture some landscape photos. I saw a great view on the way up so we pulled over quick to get a shot of the snowy mountains from a street view. Got the shot before and traffic came!" #MyCanonStory Photo Credit: @aye_danilo Camera: #Canon EOS 6D Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Aperture: f/5 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/125 sec Focal Length: 24mm

"This is at Windansea Beach in San Diego, CA. It's a pretty popular spot and usually packed around sunset. The small straw hut is only around sometimes because the wind can blow away all the straws only leaving a wooden frame. I crawled in a very small sewer drain offering a new perspective to a very popular spot. The lens that I used helped make this possible as the wide-angle helped capture the entire scene." #MyCanonStory Photo Credit: @tannermcqueen Camera: #Canon EOS 5D Mark II Lens: Canon EF 14mm f/2.8L USM Aperture: f/11 ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/60 sec Focal Length: 14mm

Fog can transform your photography into something eerily stunning, striking or ominous. Make sure you manual focus in live view mode to prefocus on the area you want to highlight within the fog to help create depth. #LearnwithCanon Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Lens: #Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Aperture: f/13 ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/40 sec Focal Length: 100mm
