I just came back from a walk along the Rhine where
these two lovebirds (Mallards) shared their little
private moment with me -
poor Mrs. Mallard, she really had to hold her breath for a while. *g*

Thanks & have a great sunday! :-)

Guten tag Thor und wie gehts?

There has got to be a joke and punchline in this shot! :-)

It really is a great story image, nicely taken with good clarity.


Hello Thorsten,
Nice showing of Mallards having fun. Crisp clear image and well composed. Nice vivid colors. Very well done.

Hi Thorsten
Great action shot. Maybe you should light up the males head, it is a bit dark with eye hardly visible. Have a look at the WS.

Hi Thorsten.
You managed to catch a very nice scene. The action is amazing as well as the quality of the shot. I also like perfect composition of the image, excellent colours and amazing reproduction of the birds and water. My compliments and TFS.

Hahaha - da sind sie also - haben scheinbar viel Spaß gehabt - jedenfalls ER!
Klasse Motiv, Thorsten, was hast Du Deiner Kleinen nur erzählt was die beiden da machen?
Wo man doch die Mädchen nicht untertauchen darf, das ist böse!
Viele Grüße

Hi Thorsten,
I have seen this very thing myself with these ducks as well as others,makes me glad I'm not a duck.This photo is fine as presented as there is nothing really wrong with it as taken and the workshop really doesn't make much of a difference.A good nature shot of the reality of these birds lives.Tfs. Bob

Hallo Thorsten,
das muss das Wasser im Rhein sein, so was hab ich hier noch nie vor die Linse bekommen;-).
Gans schoen wild gehts da zu, klasse Aktionfoto.

Kinky!! Both you for taking, and the ducks for doing it on the water! Never seen such before. Always thought they would go at it on land!

Hi Thor,
Nice moment, well captured. Very interesting objects. Well composed, sharp, and neat.
Superb shot.
