May is the time when Eiders start to breed in UK. For a southern Europe photographer like me the eider is an exotic and very attractive duck.

Hello Carlos

This is a splendid shot of this interesting and beautiful bird - the eider - one that we don't seem to see a lot of here on TN.
The POV from where you took this is exceptional and it also gave you a superb BG clearance.
The exposure was very well managed (carefully not overexposing the whites) and as teh result the natural colors are very beautiful.
The details are also very clear and sharp and the composition is lovely.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Carlos

A lovely eider shot - and excellent that you have caught the eye so well - exposing to get the eye can be quite tricky in this duck.

Hi Carlos. This is a very good shot indeed. I just love the shape of this bird. great colour and detail. with a nice POV and DOF. well done TFS.

great make up, TFS Ori

Very nice image Carlos.
Composition and exposure are very good.
The eider does stand out very well against the BG with it's blue color tones.
Very well done.

Hello Carlos,
Excellent POV. Very good natural colours. I think it wasn't easy in the sharp ligt. Lovely composition and BG.

Hi Carlos,
Never saw this one.
Technically difficult as there are the blacks and the whites and as an extra: the sun.
Good POV...and well composed.

Muy buenas Carlos
Una gran foto de este "noedredon", simplemente preciosa la foto y el machote.
Un saludo

Hola Carlos, una preciosidad el eider. No los había visto nunca. Solo en la guías cuando estas buscando otros bichos. Te he realizado un pequeño workshop, espero que te guste. Un abrazo.
