Thank you Debra. It is now a chalenge for me to shoot the mallard male with blue head. Doesn't take more than that to have fun.

Thank you very much Jenny. Birds in flight was a nightmare last summer I am getting better at it. practice a lot. Quite proud of that one.

The mallard duck with the dark blue head and violet wings are my favorite. More exotic. Mallard male is one of those birds that shows different colours depending of the light reflection. So far I believe the blue tone occurs mostly in early spring conditions because I can't remember seeing one in full summer last year. I keep on working the subject but anyway, the blues has my vote.
