I wish you all TN membres Merry Christmas and Happy 2008 !!!!!

I found this guy on the "Rivière des Prairies", with other ducks (Mallards and American black ducks). I think it's a partialy albino mallard or a hybrid with domestic duck.

Hi Mircea,

Great in flight shot. Very, very sharp and the details are superb. My compliments!!
Have a great Christmas!!


Well done, Mircea.
Good sharpness. Don't know the ID but I'm glad it is not an ordinary Mallard as the latter is often uploaded in flight.
Well done
Merry Christmas!

Hello Mircea,
Good freeze of action!
Fine details of what seems like a happy bird, probably because he missed the Christmas table this year (as part of the food I mean...)...

I love his pose, Mircea.
Neck outstretched, wings pulled back.... Very dynamic.
Interesting colors on this duck. The legs are certainly strikingly orange!!!
A beautiful composition with a lovely BG.
TFS and wishing you a happy and healthy 2008, my friend!
