Now this is one gorgeous image. Love the cute pose and rich colors in her well detailed plumage. Her reflection in the sky blue water with it's rippled effect is so pleasing to view. A real beauty and well worth the effort it took to capture this eyecatching shot.
PS. I am going to have to check your waterfowl identification site a little more, it looks to be very interesting and helpful.

Nice photo of the black duck.
Lovely reflection and ripples on the water.
The light blue feathers on the wing is interesting.

A nice shot Brenda!
I like the circles in this image, the round shape of this preening black Duck and the circular ripples below her. Great colours, lighting and composition with her reflection too.
Thanks from the cold North, we have 2ft of snow :((

What a lovely duck is this American Black Duck with its beautiful patterns in its plumage and how beautifully you captured it. I also like the variation of different colours in its plumage. I agree with Ron that the ripples in the water is just as pleasant to look at, as the duck itself. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

a nice picture of a fine Duck from your hands an camera.
The pose is very nice.
IMO it's a bit to centred but it's of course personal.
