Hi Pierre,

Hi Pierre
We are getting a huge influx of wintering ducks at the moment but they are all leary of hunters and impossible to approach...Nice color and detail...TFS

Bonjour Pierre,

Les branchus au lac Boivin sont tellement beaux et si faciles d'approche. Dommage pour ces passerelles qui nous obligent à être au-dessus d'eux et ainsi être obligé d'obtenir des vues en plongée...

Les couleurs sont belles et justes mais j'aurais aimé qu'il soit un peu plus tourné vers nous...

Bye et merci du partage (MDP ;-) )


Hello Pierre,

The fine light makes the plumage like shine!
A lovely bird captured in a fine diagonal movement, the colour palette is well reproduced with sharp fine details in the feathers...
Interesting colour reflections in the water to make up a good background for the bird!

Hallo Pierre
This is so beautiful. The colours captured on the plumage are striking and display so well in the sunlight. This duck has some lovely features, one being the red eye with its yellow circle. The beak also has a variation of colours that is truly beautiful to look at. I like the way you captured the duck from the back, this way showing the feathers in all its glory and splendour. The different colours in the water are also very eye-catching. You have used the light well to bring out all the gorgeous details of this water bird. I like this image a lot. Thanks for sharing and my best regards.

Bonjour Pierre
Superbe photo de ce canard branchu ( en france nous l'appelons Carolin )
j'aime bien l'angle de vue en biais et la lumière sur son beau plumage
les details sont magnifiques
Passe une bonne nuit
