Hi Peter. I sould love to have seen all of these different Ducks so close to home. I shall have to come to Netherlandds one day to see them. You have taken this Ruddy Duck with fine detail and bright colours. I do like its flat blue bill. well done TFS.

A fine capture of a male Ruddy Duck, a threat to our European White-headed Duck. The POV, lighting, colours and composition contribute to an excellent portrait of this species. Park specimens must have their wings constantly clipped!
Thanks and best regards,

alweer een mooie eend op de gevoelige plaat.
Dit is een moeilijke met die witte en donkere tinten.
Blijkt ook wel want volgens mij is het witte op de wangen iets overbelicht.
Maar weer een mooie soort voor je toch al grote vogel collectie.

what a pretty duck! :-) the colors are great, especially the "ruddy" one on the back and the blue beak, very cool, and
the black & white face, adorable. have to check our zoo, maybe they have some there too, would be nice to see them live.
well done & best wishes, thor.

An excellent addition to your duck collection. I love the light blue bill and the rust colored feathers. He is glowing against the darker water.

We, Bernardete & self, visited a National Park (Elk Island.) just one hour west of Edmonton about 3 weeks ago; we saw one of these beauties. I could not get my equipment ready, quick enough, to register it. WHAT A PITY.
MAGNIFICIENT imagery. Excellent notes.
Best regards from Calgary,
