from Hinterland Who's Who website

« The Mallard is an excellent mother,
however. She will stop at frequent
intervals to collect and brood, or warm,
her young. If surprised by an intruder,
she is likely to go flapping and squawking
across the ground, as if injured.
This feigned injury may not fool a human,
but undoubtedly lures predators away. »

Bonjour Asbed Iskedjian
Voilà une bine belle composition pour l'occasion.Un moment de tendresse qui peut se manifester chez les animaux sauvages y compris les oiseaux. Une belle exposition avec de beauddeétails sur le plumage de la mère.


Hello Asbed!
Great scene, great moment, beautifully presented! Very good composition, natural colors, perfect sharpness and great details!
An interesting thing.. Mothers Day is celebrated in many countries, but we, Hungarians, celebrate this day on the first Sunday of May... More countries celebrate this day on the second Sunday of May, but there are countries where is celebrated in: march (different days), June, August, October even December!!! Interesting... Important is that almost everywhere people celebrate the ones whom gave birth to them... Isn't it?

Bonjour Asbed,
Joli cliché et composition bien présenté ici,
superbe présentation de cette canne et son caneton..
c'est excellent et une belle prise de vue..

Hello Asbed,
Sunday it's also Mother's Day here. Very nice photo for this special occasion. Good sharpness, beautiful colours and taken from an excellent POV. The water is beautiful too.

Hello Asbed
Beautiful photo with excellent composition and good sharpness. The colours and the lighting are fantastic.

Bonsoir Asbed,

Les reflets sur l'eau de la rivière sont des atouts à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du canard et caneton colvert. L'image est claire et précise. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.


And this guy and gal are also monogamous for the most part. Another with the masters touch.
