Yves Langlois

Thank you Clifford. Mallards are number here and easy to shoot so I develop my hability on them.

Heather Mellon

Wonderful tones and detail Yves.. the water is like glass and reflects this handsome mallard so perfectly. A very striking and beautiful capture!

Yves Langlois

Thank you for the nice coments Heather. All what you noticed in your coment is what strikes me in that image. Colours and sharp details of the duck. Dence blue water without any riddles. The nice wake in the back and the little bump of water in front. For me all that makes an impressive image.

Harold Fleming

Lovely colours, Yves! Nice light and shadows giving a good reflection!

Yves Langlois

Thank you Harold. The quality of colours here is what amazes me when I saw the image. Thank the sun god who was at the right spot in the sky, so the head of the mallard is just amazing to. I mean the pale green patch with the dark green all around, a sparkle in the eye and the nice yellow beak. I produce my own birday cards and that one is gona be one, that's for sure.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Debra. It is one of those shots that I am very proud of.

Debra Plett

Very pretty capture Yves, great colours. I like the stillness to this image.

Sometime the shooting conditions are so good that the resulting image can be used for a postcard.
