Red-Crested Pochard / Netta Rufina
This large Pochard, one of the Diving Ducks, is native to Europe and Asia. They inhabit mostly freshwater, prefering pools and deep protected areas along moving water.
In the breeding male, the head is rusty orange, breast black, sides white, wings brownish and the distinctive bill is red. In eclipse plumage he looks like the female but his bill remains red. The female has a dark brown crown and nape with pale grey on lower face and front of neck. Otherwise, she is dull brown. Her bill is reddish-brown.
They are unusual among ducks in that the drake will dive and bring food to the female during breeding season. Typical clutch size is 6-14 greenish eggs. Incubation lasts 25-27 days. They do well in captivity and mix well with other small ducks.

Welcome to TN community. Your 1st post entry here is a superb capture of pochard in flight. Good sharpness and color with fine exposure and bokeh, although photo info is not given.

I am guessing the shutter of more than 1/500s. Very good freeze of motion. I find the colored red beak to be good draw of attention. In your resize, try to push to full compression and get 300kb for higher resolution. Here you have only 133kb file.

Hope to see your next post soon.

Hello Koksal,
It's a pity it just misses that little bit of extra sharpness and then it would have been a stunner.
But nevertheless there are the excellent colours, the outstanding background, etc.
Wish you a great 09!
