Dave Wyman was at the Hollywood Reservoir in the Hollywood Hills with his camera. As he was photographing the scene, he noticed several ducks out of the corner of his eye. Within a few seconds, he aimed his camera, focused his lens and pressed the shutter button.
"I didn't think it was much of a photo until I saw it on my computer monitor and recognized its otherworldly quality," he said.
Wyman took this photo on Feb. 15 with a Sony Alpha a6000.
