Preciosa y simpatica foto Marie, excelentes detalles y composicion. Buen trabajo!! Carme.

Salut Marie

And I hear the phrase: " No not now! I have a head-ache!"...

Great moment to capture. The twisted head on the female took a second look to confirm.

Merci, J.

Hola Marie,
Me gusta mucho como has hecho coincidir eltítulo con lo que se ve en la foto. Muy linda la situación entre ambos patos y las diferentes tonalidades de marrón.Saludos

bonjour marie
j'aime cette composition et l'air agacé de madame qui doit surement reprocher a son mâle de ne pas s'occuper de la progeniture ou autre chose!toutes les occasions sont bonnes,n'est ce pas medames?(hi hi hi)

Hi Marie,
I think he's late:-)
A bit noise in his...let's say black parts.

Hahaha, your note says it all... LoL
This is a great action photo where the motif is the center of it all, and you have manage so well to capture this situation, Marie! Great colours and details!

Est cet l'amour français??? ;o)


Hi Marie,
I wonder what they are saying to each other. Nice image of this pair. I like the way you have captured the light on the birds feathers. Great quality.

Salut Marie,
Ils ont l'air en grande discussion en effet :) C'est une bonne capture avec un parfait "timing" et il est bien amusant de voir les 2 bavarder comme ça. Bravo!

Dear Marie,
I think that your faculty of shooting and titling are better and better. Greeting!

Hi Marie,
This is a very good shot of this pair of wood ducks. I like pictures showing interesting action and behaviors and this is one of the best.
She looks very angry and him guilty (probably he’s late home)

Hi Marie, your timing on this one was perfect with her head turned and quacking. It makes for an excellent composition. The lighting is good throughout providing great detail and colour.

Thanks, John

Hi Marie,
Just acknowledging this wonderful shot. Superbly done. Wish I could write a few more words, pity my net problem does not allow that. Sorry.
TFS this awesome shot.

Hallo Marie
A lovely scene of these two ducks. This is an excellent and actually funny close up filled with a variety of features and details. I get the impression that the one said to the other: "I'll stand on my head for you". Beautiful arrangement of shiny colours in some of the plumage. A special and colourful photo, well presented and enjoyable to look at. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards
