[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Northern Shoveler is a common and widespread duck. It breeds in northern areas of Europe and Asia and across most of North America, wintering in southern Europe, Africa, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and Central and northern South America. This one is wintering in north Poland in Oliva park, and it is a great atraction for birdwatchers of my region.

Hello Jacek,
Very nice to see you back with a new posting.
The light on the Northern Shoveler is splendid. Excellent timing. Great sharp detailed focus on the head. Taken from a very good low POV with a beautiful background.

The lighting is very special in this image of beautiful Shoveler..good composition. tfs.

Hello Jacek

This fine photo of a Female Northern Shoveller really feels alive in part due to the obvious magical spot light but also due to the fantastic mix of shadow and light through the photo. Simple but stunning.

Hello Jacek,
the species is common but the light isn't! Very beautiful composition too and perfect sharpness. I love it very much, Tfs.
