I enjoyed reading your opening para, Pekka. It's hilarious :)!
This very colourful water bird does look a bit peeved; it is that red eye that says it.
A beautiful capture in its totality with sharp focus and rich colours. The circular waves go well with the subject.
Thanks and regards.

Good and funny shot of this Pochard. This one seems not to be happy to see you. Good overall sharpness with a blurry head which allows to imagine its movement. Beautiful colours.

You are showing a good photo of this bird. Sharpness is good so that even water drops from the plumage can be well seen. As you have used well the light colors are saturated and naturaly lookin.
Thank you for sharing,

excellent shot of the Red-crested Pochard male,
i love his pose, and also love your humoristic
biggining of notes, excellent sharpness and details
of the duck, but i would prefer to give a little bit
more spaces behind and in-front of him, TFS

The subdued colours and facial expression make this one pretty neat to see,...I'll bet a beer it was even better in person although looks like a drudge day..Still these can be the day for such god images..

What an interesting pose you have managed.
The POV is terrific.
Excellent colouration in the plumage.
The bill has an amazing red colour too.

The capture of the water ripples is an asset to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the duck. The picture is clear and sharp. The light is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.
