from Ducks Unlimited Canada website

« These birds are the most abundant
and widely distributed waterfowl
species in North America.

When people think of a duck,
many think of the mallard. The mallard,
or anas platyrhynchos platyrhynchos, is a
duck that is found all over North America.

Commonly called greenheads (drakes),
grey ducks (hens) and susies (hens),
mallard ducks, with their trademark
“quack” call, are one of the most
recognized of all the ducks. »

Hello Asbed
How are You?
Wonderful lady mallard taken from a good POV,pity that turned the neck a bit to the left.Wonderful natural colours and excellent sharpness.Thank You.

Bonjour Asbed,

Le canard est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du canard Colvert femelle. Les reflets sur l'eau sont des atouts à la composition. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


For a change, it is good to see a bird from you firmly on the ground and not flying, Asbed. :)
Very sharp and crisp picture of the female Mallard against an authentic water background.
Even the log of wood within the frame adds value to the composition.

Ciao Asbed, great capture of lovely lady in nice pose, splendid light, excellent clarity and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Asbed.
What a splendid mallard. You have pictured it simply brilliantly at a very attractive scenery. Clarity of the image, colours, lights and shadows are wonderful as well as crisp sharp details of the bird and nearest objects. Well done and warm regards.

Hello Asbed,
You have captured this little lady very well. Nicely composed and showing excellent detail and true colors. She looks like she is preoccupied with something at the moment and doesn't even know you were taking her picture.

Beautiful photo Asbed! Good composition, wonderful colours and very good sharpness!

Hi Asbed,
Beautiful lady mallard, I agree. Greatly composed photo, probably with slight blue overcast and slight overexposion (see the lost details on the whites of the lady). The wings are also unsharp a bit. However, not bad in general, a fair try, but might be a bit better in my opinion. Anyway, what are you doing now? Once you said you train the puppy - but we miss you from the site. Have a few minutes here at least once a week if possible.
Best regards, László
