Hello friends, Autumn reflections with the mallard duck drake.

1/400s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« Migration
Resident to medium-distance migrant. Mallards occur year-round
across much of the United States. Populations that breed across
Canada and Alaska leave in fall for wintering sites in the southern
United States and northern Mexico, typically traveling along
well-known migration flyways. »

Hi Asbed,welcome back with this magnificent and fresh autumn pic! A great way to show us this male mallard duck with the typical colors of these days! The reflected tree seems like a big reversed crown for the duck,and the quality of brightness is the best,very well done! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Very well seen and captured frame reflecting autumn colors on the surface of still water, Asbed.
The picture is well composed with artistic balance between foreground and background.

Hello Asbed,
What a bright and beautiful image you have presented to us. The fall colors are a real treat and your mallard seems right at home in this lovely environment. Thanks for sharing this eye catching scene with us.

Hello Asbed,
Beautiful idea and a nice picture of colourful reflection. Here Duck isn't your main aim, so it's OK, that it's not well depth and details. Like colour of water. Beautiful...
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Hello Asbed,
Lovely reflection in the water of the leafs....Nice autumn composition.

Ciao Asbed, lovely composition with fascinating reflections, fantastic autumnal colors, splendid light and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonsoir Asbed,

Les reflets sur l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du canard Colvert en bois. La qualité de la lumière embellit les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.


Unusual picture that shows the colors of autumn in a new way. The mallard is a nice surprise element!!

Hi Asbed,
Unique composition, it seems for first that the branches are growing out of the duck. :-) Perfect timing and fantastic recognition, a type of photo I've never seen before. Excellent lights and colors, a majestic, in spite of the ISO 1000 an absolutely noise free shot. Huge congratulations for this elegant and individual image.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
