Hi Adrian,
the duck gives a special eye pose. Very nice head view and feathers, sharp and clear.
the reflection makes itt quite interesting too.
Very well done with bluish water that gives a special duck scene.


Hello Adrian,
My dear neighbor today! It is an honor for me!
This is another of your photos throbbing in nature and eloquence. The bird's attitude says it all, Excellent light, composition is something defiant to the rules, but has obtained a visually appealing result. Thanks for sharing, you have happy week. Greetings,

Ciao Adrian. Good capture in warm light and intrigant reflections.


hello Adrian

beautiful photo of this duck with a fine POV
and the way diagonally it i framed on the image,
fine focus sharpness and details, very beautiful
soft luminosity and colour tones, TFS


Ciao Adrian,
non credo che si tratti di una specie selvatica, ma semplicemente di qualche incrocio di anatra domestica Germanata, a volte questi incroci si comportano come anatre selvatiche, splendidi colori e buona definizione, belli anche i riflessi.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

salut Adrien
Félicitation pour cette belle prise de vue de cette femelle .Les détails et les couleurs sont trčs beauxainsi que la composition.
Bravo et merci pour l'envoie....JP

Buna Adrian,
O ratusca interesanta si plina de viata. Nu cunosc specia dar poate te ajuta Razvan.
Detalii foarte bune si culori pe masura.
Numai bine!

Ciao Adrian, great capture of lovely duck, splendid reflections, wonderful colors, excellent sharpness and fine details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Pot sa te ajut eu: ESTE O RATA!
Ha ha!
Este un aimal, adica o pasare, extrem de buna cu varza si unii o gatesc chiar cu portocale!

Hi Adrian

Nice shot - with good detail. I am no expert, but this looks like a cross between a Mallard and farm duck - the mottled beak is a clue - however, there are many better birders on TN than me!

Best wishes

Este o incrucisare intre o rata mare si rata domestica! Vecinii nostrii au folosit, folosesc pentru vinatoare, ma gindesc la sirbii in special, dar sa incercat si in Ungaria cersterea acestei rase.

Gracias por tus amables comentarios Adrian,
siempre anima que a otro le guste tu trabajo.
Interesante tu toma de una ve que no conozco.Parece que sea un ave domesticada o en cautividad, no lo se, ya que se ve un agua estancada y ese tronco cortado. Espero que los
expertos en aves te la identifiquen. Saludos.
