[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear TN friend,
I am sorry for my absence, been some crazy weather in Cape Town, today was different, I took my camera, took all my appointments I learn from you!
Decided to go around the neighborhood, I live near small lakes, checked the camera metering, took couple of clicks adjusted the Exposure Compensation, and click. Did not spend a lot of time, I still don't feel very safe walking alone those areas with such gear.
Anyway, thank you for your help and comments.

Hello Nelson,
I was in Cape Town and South Africa twice, but never saw this Yellow-billed Duck, Anas undulata. Nice photo in good sharpness and beautiful saturated colors.

What a beauty Nelson,
Perfectly exposed with no blown out areas. Excellent focus allowing us to view it's fine features in wonderful detail. I don't know if I've ever seen this particular species before. Gorgeous blue water.

Hi Nelson,beautiful capture of this duck in a relaxing moment,closed eyes but a spectacular composition very sharp and bright,the colors are fantastics too.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hi Nelson,

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details of the duck. It is clear and sharp. Have a nice day.
