I loved the pose of the Brownie!
perfect sharpness, rich colour and details
very well composed and well seen
thanks for sharing
This 'Brownie' is the female Red-crested Pochard. You posted a male in eclipse plumage not so long ago, well, this is the female.
Superb technically with good lighting and colours.

How odd that as soon as you upload a more 'normal' photo people are less curious to what the large version looks like. I'm glad I opened it since the elegant pose of this wonderful duck is very beautiful. The brown on brown composition worked perfectly, and made the entire composition very pleasant for the eyes. Great details and perfect exposure.

Splendid shot with sharp details on its plumage and lovely colour tones. The lighting and focus are superb and a fine pose is illustrated here. The brownish BG looks majestic and lets the subject stand out. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.
