Very nice shot of this photogenic duck Harold. I like the sense of calm you caught here and the rippled reflections. A beautiful image.

She was a very calm duck compared to some Mallards, for instance. She would swim away from me but never fly and she would only go so far. I was glad to finally get close to her.

Clifford Dupuis

Superb capture of this fine duck. Great colours and nicely shot to reflect the environment.

Thank you, Clifford! I was glad to see this gal. I don't think we get many of them here.

Yves Langlois

A great artistic shot Harold. Everything is well balanced here. The white lighting is not something we control, but you where lucky to have it. It gives a nice highlight to the duck. That dark green is exactly what needed the shot. Like it very much.

Harold Fleming

Your very right on the white here, Yves. His swimming opened up the dark green water to the light and led into the duck. It added that extra element to the scene that was needed.

Debra Plett

The angle really shows off the duck nicely Harold. I like the composition with the water trails and ripples bringing your attention to the duck.

Thank you, Debra! I was pleased to see this bird closer this morning than I have for a month.

Today I went early for my morning walk and came upon this Redhead Duck sitting on a log. I did not catch her on the log but shortly after she entered the water I got a shot at her.
