Bathing ritual of a Mallard. First you dunk your head in the water, then you come out and flap your wings vigorously after which you remove excess water by shaking your body.

Well they certainly like to splash. Nice frozen movement and good energy here

Hi Yves,
Splendid shot this of the Mallard and a nice moment captured. Lovely colours, impressive sharpness, fine focus and perfect lighting. The splashes of water are so special and it seems the mallard is enjoying the bath. Great POV and the rippled water as BG looks superb. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonsoir Yves,

Une belle image de ce canard qui prend son bain. La photo a une bonne composition, netteté et de jolies couleurs. Bonne soirée.
