Hi Biswarup,
this is a superb shot with nice composition and vivid colours.
Well done,

a lower exposure and higher pov would have improved this shot but its a lovely effort to capture him and his reflection.

Hi Biswarup,
What did you do with the neck of this shot it is a strange picture.
The duck is beautifull.

Amazing!! I wonder if it just had a hair cut somewhere. Colour composition is great. Exposure was a bit higher.

Hello Biswarup
Now I see the marvellous collection of beautiful pictures that you've got! I love this wondrous Mandarin with its perfect reflection.
Sharpness, colors, POV and composition are gorgeous!
Congratulations and thank you very much for so much beauty.

Hi Biswarup,
Splendid capture! Nicely feathered duck, the reflection and shapness makes it stand out. TFS

This is a truly remarkable shot! I LOVE the detail you have been able to get in the reflection in the water to go along with the clarity of the duck itself. It adds greatly to the photograph. These are such exquisite animals on their own, and you've done a remarkable job at capturing that!
TFS Steph
