There are thousands and thousands of these ducks in my environment, specially in the winter. But I know how difficult it is to become a good photo of this duck. They are very shy. You succeeded very well.

Ivan, even I tried that with my Canon compact the other day to shoot a White-throated Kingfisher. Somehow, the shot came out alright. You have obtained a super shot with yours at 50x. I have known you for your steady hands and this shot proves it again.
The Mallard looks cute in this picture. Seen one pottering around on ice instead of water for a change, and I like it!

You have captured this shot well with a smaller camera and managed excellent details after some cropping. Love the rendered natural tone and not an easy shot against the white snow. Well done and have a great weekend.

There is quite a differance between the European Wigeon and the American Wigeon as far as markings and colors. This particular species is certainly attractive and captured very well by your camera.

the view is so lovely with minute details of the feathers. The simple view of snowy surrounding and the color contrast of the duck itself is attractive.
