You have really captured superbly irridescent head feathers with a lovely glow.
I think your right that he is having a warm but he certainly is showing you his best side.
Superb sharp details all over.

Of course he was posing for you!! Nice pose - he looks like he is relaxing. He doesn't seem at all disturbed by you as he looks straight at the camera. The irridescent green and the other colors are lovely. A really nice close-up portrait.

I like to see the nice picture of the beautiful duck. I have took these days almost similar pictures at Fashion Show. Great portrait work. Very attractive pose of the bird, charming expression of the eye and superb cropping. I like BG a lot too. Perfect job. My hearty compliments.

excellent close-up shot, there is a good light on the subject,
natural colors, and i love the hard density of the colors,
sharpness and details are excellent, lovely catch-light at the eye,
and in the framing i love that you let a very good space
at the left of the duck (the right of the image) and at his top

These ducks are very common here in NZ, but I do like them. And they do photograph well.
You've captured the colours and patterns well Bev, and the catch-light in his eye too - BRAVO!

This is a fine portrait with this pretty fellow!
I like his pose and the composition, and I think the birds are even more happy for the upcoming spring than I am, hehehe...
Excellent details in the plumage!

This is a beautiful capture. Great sharpness to show his great color, and DOF puts the focus on him. I love how the sun has made his breast feathers look silky.

He might be posing for you, one never knows!
Well captured shot bringing out the brilliant colours. Subject is very sharp and no BG attractions.TFS
