[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Sorry about this one I have no information about these lovely looking ducks. All I can say is that they looked very peaceful when I was taking some pictures of them. If you know what they are please let me know. Many thanks in advance.
They where taken at the Wetland centre in Barnes, West of London.

What you have hear is a White-face Whistlind Duck also called the white faced Tree Duck (Dendrocygna viduata) it is a native across both the southern contienents of Africa and South America. I hope these details will enable you to look them up and give us a few more details about the beautiful flock of ducks the reflctions are particularly good,nice image.

Very nice picture. Also it interesting to know that whistling ducks are in your region, it's not there home. Usuly they live in the south hemisphere.
I know them very well, because I lived long time in MALAWI, and as I was in the bush, I was hunting them to feed us. (sorry) This is another story.

The DOF in this photo is great. Very sharp. Well taken. Thanx for sharing.

Very nice Demetrio.
Good colours , nice DOF and good details.
Well done.

I like the composition of the whole scene.
You had bad luck by not having the light of the sun illuminating to the ducks, it would have been better, but even though that it is a very good photo. The water colour is a good reflection of the dark sky. Well captured Demetrio.

Very nice, great details and sharpness. It's nice with the reflections in the water.

Hola Demetrio,
bella foto de estos patos, ya Robbrown te dió algunos datos.
En Argentina se los llama patos sirirí, por su canto que es un bien notorio y agudo "siiriríii...". Una vez tuve unos en cautiverio, son hermosos.
