[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the brood from the other photo Ducks Before a Storm.

I did a lot of sharpening on this one, trying to enhance the water droplets spraying off the little duck which had just surfaced from a dive. May have gone a bit overboard

It was fun watching the ducklings dabbling and diving, particularly diving. They would suddenly disappear, leaving a swirl of water and then pop to the surface a few seconds later like a cork.

nice sharpness and water ripples good water droplets.

I love the tiny drops clinging to it, wonderful clarity

I like the simple composition of this photo...
The water droplets and steel grey ripples add to a more interesting effect.

Bienvenida a TN Michele... primorosa imagen con la agudeza y foco para captar los detalles de este pequeño pato y su bella ornamentación de gotas sobre el plumaje.
Me gusta el efecto producido alrededor con las ondas sobre el agua y la tenue reflexión que se percibe.
Un agradable punto de vista acorde con el encuadre elegido para la presentación.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Welcome to TN Michele... dainty image with sharpness and focus to capture the details of this small duck and their beautiful ornamentation of drops on the plumage.
I like the effect produced around with the waves on the water and the delicate reflection that it is perceived.
Pleasant point of view in agreement with the elected framing for the presentation.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Wow Michele.

The position of the bird in "Golden Mean", the colors of the water, the ripples and the color of the bird has created a massive impact ( Superb Picture )
