    This egg has just been laid, the first in the short arctic spring. At Svalbard loons do not get so scared that they can be photographed with an action camera without disturbing them, they do not consider the human being a threat because they are not hunted. Along the roads of Longyearbyen if the ducks decide to cross then all traffic stops, such is respect.

    "Wow! Wonderful exploration! The scene makes me feel like I'm not seeing this image, I'm living the scene in person. You take me closer to this beautiful duck species and it's habitat. The complete scene has me lost in the arctic wild. Fantastic use of layers! Excellent job." Your Shot Photographer Subhojit Dutta.
