[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This picture was taken in Coventry Canal. It's an ideal place for taking pictures with animals or plants.
GB has a lot of canals. They are good for some trips and generally for rest.
There is a duck on this picture.
Wikipedia the free encyclopedia:
Duck is the common name for a number of species in the Anatidae family of birds. The ducks are divided between several subfamilies in the Anatidae family; they do not represent a monophyletic group but a form taxon, since swans and geese are not considered ducks. Ducks are mostly aquatic birds, mostly smaller than the swans and geese, and may be found in both fresh water and sea water.

Hi Maciej,
Nice timing of this malard doing a " landing dance".The wing has a bit of overexposure and washed out all detail in that area, otherwisw a pleasant image.

Hello Maciej,
Beautiful shot of this duck with nice composition, details and colours.
TFS and regards

Hi Maciej,

A good capture of the action of the duck which is moving on the water. the point of view is showing the details and colors of the mallard duck. Unfortunately, the duck is overexposed which is affecting the sharpness in some areas. Have a nice day.
