Hello Trevor

Excellent photo of the female Common Merganser
with her expressive pose, photo shot with fine
POV, DOF, and framing, excellent focus,
sharpness, and details, TFS



Too much water for a lovely image that is well focused and very colorful. See workshop. I believe this photo would have been fantastic if cropped and sized from the original.

Best wishes,
