[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos), the best-known and most recognizable of all ducks, is a dabbling duck which breeds throughout the temperate and sub-tropical areas of North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, New Zealand (where it is currently the most common duck species), and Australia. It is strongly migratory in the northern parts of its breeding range, and winters farther south. For example, in North America it winters south to Mexico, but also regularly strays into Central America and the Caribbean between September and May.

Hi Marx,
beautiful mallard in good details and sharpness. The pattern on the feather is really exciting and you have shown it very very well.
The pose of the mallard also give an impact to your composition.
Nicely taken.

Foozi
