Hello Pierre,

He looks like a happy bird, and well fed I think (maybe there is a connection hehehe)..!
Fine light and good details in the plumage, funny pose by your feathered friend...

Hi Pierre,
beautiful mallard in good light. I like those colours that differentiate the species of ducks.
The nature create beauty and we appreciate it so much.
Beautiful pose in a relaxed manner.
Well done.


You have caught this canard in a pose which makes it look double jointed:-) Almost as if it could be in a movie called Exorcist Duck!

Hi Pierre, Looks like a very good place to walk for nature photos. This is good and clear with suitable colours. The 80-400mm seems to be a very good lens for birds, one of life's pleasure to photograph. TFS. Murray.
