You better believe I remember this shot...it was my favorite from the first time I saw it. If I'm not mistaken it was featured on your intro page. I would occasionally go back and look at it just trying to imagine how I would feel if I could someday capture such an image. No need to critique it as it is still as special to me today as it was back then.
"Merry Christmas" Gert, and have a "Happy New Year"

Merry Christmas to you too, Gert!
As usual, your images set a standard apart and this picture of a male Mallard is no exception.
Thanks and keep coming back.

I remember you deleted a lot of great photos from your gallery a few years ago, so I regard this one... Probably some more come back, too. Beautiful shot, probably with 1/2000 the mallard's body and plumage might be sharper, but the composition's breathtaking.
Have a nice festive season, and I hope you return to the site fully, with both new and old pics. Kind regards from the Emerald Isle, László

Hi, dear Gert, my coeval.
I remember this picture perfectly. It is impossible to forget it. I have not such pictures in my collection until now. Warm wishes in New Year.
