En effet, vraiment difféent comme point de vue, fort intéressant. Quelle belle netteté dans les détails. Superbe, on croirait que le canard est pensif.

This makes the duck look giant size! I can just visualize you lying on the ground, upside down trying to get this unique angle. Well done.

A monster mallard Luc,
Nice details, sharpness and colours.
Excellent POV makes this a great shot.
Thanks for posting

Definitely a different POV, but we can see that she has no double chins Luc. Good crop too, her feathers are very sharp and clear. You really got down to her level and the result is great. Well done.

This is definitely a different pov. I would love to know how you got this shot ??

Cet angle de vue est inabituel mais intéressant.
Le détail des plumes et le regard vif du canard donnent tout le caractère à la photo.
Merci pour le partage!
