[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I saw this member of egzotic specie today in Gdansk Oliwa Park. The Wood Duck or Carolina Duck (Aix sponsa) is a species of duck found in North America.The Wood Duck is a medium-sized perching duck. A typical adult is from 47 to 54 cm (19 to 21 in) in length with a wingspan of between 66 to 73 cm (26 to 29 in). This is about three-quarters of the length of an adult Mallard.

Hallo Jacek
You captured the variation of striking colours and the details in the feathers of this Duck beautifully. I also like the close point of view as well as the composition which is pleasant. Another pleasant factor is the catchlight in the eye and the jade green feathers on the duck's head. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Splendid image, Jacek!
Excellent sharpness and great low POV; perfect light and beautiful shades of colour; wonderful eye! A beauty!

Hello Jacek,

This is not just a splendid picture, but the POV is extraordinary. Tac sharp. You must have been in a prone position to shot this water level angle! It makes me wonder if you have a full reflection before cropping? Well done. TFS

Best wishes,


Ciao Jacek.
