Beautiful colours and lots of detail in the feathers. nice lighting too Yves. I am also anxious for spring to arrive and Mother Nature to come alive with colour.

Thanks Debra. I found that one original, different than the usual picture of the mallard. How do you like the little touch of pale blue around the duck?

Debra Plett

Love the touches of blue in the water. Was this from the angle of the light or did you have your camera set to something like vivid.

Gorgeous duck Yves. I so look forward to them in the spring.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Jenny. They are quite common duck here but they are easy and fun to capture. I present that one because the colours are great and the feathers shown are not usual.

The mallard duck was grooming under the morning sun. Suddenly the hole picture appears to me like a work of art, with surprising shapes, unusual details and bright colours.
