Hi Annick.
So expressive pose of the bird and wonderful diagonal structure of the image. I like excellently reflected sunlight and richness of the plumage colours, nice colourful smooth BG and perfect details and sharpness of the mallard image. TFS and best regards.
Alexei.

Excellent capture! Gorgeous detail in the plumage and such a glorious light! Add to it the interesting pose - and we got a winner! Kudos! Cheers, Klaus

Hi Annick

Very beautiful! I have always loved the subtle colours and the wonderful feather patterns on female mallards. I much prefer them to the male. Beautiful light and stunning details. Great pose and BG as well

bonjour Annick

j'aimes ce genre de photo avec mouvement
même si c'est un petit mouvement comme ici

ta photo est superbement focusé, excellent piqué
je vais être un tout petit peu critique
j'aurais préféré voir le canard au complet
