What a great shot, well done

Heather Mellon

Very nicely captured Yves. Super composition and detail on the plant life and this young mallard enjoying a sunny moment. It's a beautiful image.

Yves Langlois

Thank you very much Heather. Agree with you. There is someting special that I deeply like in that photo. Not sure if it is the proudness of having caught a moment rarely shown or the verymoody colours and compo. The punk hairdo make me smile everytime.

Debra Plett

Great composition Yves. The image has a lot of interest and detail from the cool youngster to all the vegetation. The duck would have been hard to spot, good find.

Yves Langlois

Thank you Debra. The original photo is much wider and there is a lot more vegetation. Yes its colours make it hard to detect in the surroundings. I do prefers the wider photo but I think more members prefers a closer framed subject. By the way, the expand option will show the long feathers that are being created. Quite interesting.

Here is a cool looking duck. Kind of a teenager look. Not a new born and not fuly grown yet, Still in the process of becoming a beautyful mallard duck.
