Hi Robert,
Simple yet greatly composed shot, sharpness is good, just like the usage of the extreme f/2,8, which resulted a well blurred background. Nice overall impression.
Best regards, László

Hello Bob,
I was just up in your area last week. I can definitely see why this fellow wanted to stay close to your pool with all the high temperatures we have been having lately. Great close-up shot showing how beautiful the drake Mallard really is.
