Hello Pierre,

I know very well it's absolutely not easy for take a duck on the water.
Certainly when the shadow fall on the head.
But the colours are nice and a pleasant moment for look at.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice weekend,

Hi Pierre,
wow...what a nice colour duck. Very pinkish and the light on its wings make it look more better.
well presented.


Wonder if this is a hybrid bird.... a Heinze 69...
Never seen anything like this before.
Mario from the COLD with greetings.
