Hi Dan
Nice shot with deep colors.
I like it very much!
Have a nice day

Excellent, rich colors and nice contrast. Love the way a moment in flight has been frozen cleanly without becoming static.

Is that a piece of bread in his bill?

This is a grand picture of this mallard with very sharp focus and rich colours.
Though I don't claim to be an expert on these things, do you really mean the exposure time for this shot was 30 seconds?

Hi Dan,

Never easy to make photo's like this. I like to see the mallard in this flying position. It shows how beautiful this common bird is. TFS.
