[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a Fulvous Whistling Duck - Dendrocygna bicolor - and they are now nesting in Florida. Some think they are more closly related to geese than ducks, but looks closer to duck to me! LOL Very pretty birds in any case - and yes, if you have not heard them, they WHISTLE, do not quack!

Hi Jacque,
Magnificent portrait!
I like very much the pose caught of this f.w.duck, and the way you filled the frame with it.
It's very good the contrasting colours and the nicely blurred background got.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,
