[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fulvuous Whistling Duck shot at Key Biscayne, Florida.

At Crandon Gardens in Key Biscayne, there is a nice colony of whistling ducks. If you get there early enough, you can get really decent closeups at 400mm. This one was perched on a fence post so I opted for a close up to keep a natural look. The grad background is due to the pond and foilage across from the subject.

Hello Michael,
Beautiful delicate image; I like the warm tones and the bi tone background. Illumination, colors and deatails are superb. A great portrait, no doubt.

This is stunning. Love the colours. Very nicely composed. Good catchlight in the eye. Nice camera work. :-)

Hi Michael,
Great portrait. I like the soft light on the bird and the warm colours. Very sharp and background could not be better.
