Hi Luis,very funny pose,they seems play with you..eheh...lovely capture of these ducks not often seen on TN,top sharpness and bright colors as usual. Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano


Hi Luis,

I have seen another whistling duck with this pose during my visit to Bharatpur Bird sanctuary in India. I always thought that only the cranes stand on one leg. Very good frontal view & sharpness..like the catch light in the eye of the one-legged duck..

Thanks for sharing.


Hello Luis,
Nice to see this Fulvous Such which I haven't captured yet here in South Africa. I like its POV as well as your chosen exposure.
But I personally don't like man made article in nature picture and I never post such picture too.
Otherwise a nice work.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Hello Luis,
A beautiful pair of Fulvous Whistling-Ducks in a relaxed pose. Exceptional detail and lovely colors in their plumage. Nice eye contact with just a tad bit of catchlight visible. Great shot!!
