It was in June, round about midnight at the Kitka River in Oulanka National Park, when I found this tufted duck drake. He was diving for food and every time he was underwater, I crawled a little bit closer. When I was in photo distance he suddenly noticed me and I could only make one shot before he flew away. On the picture it looks as if the duck is swimming very fast, but actually it stayed on the same place and the silver trace is the result of the flowing river.
