nice one Penny! i haven't seen one of these before.. quite a striking duck, and you've captured it in fantastic focus and great DoF.. the detail in those feathers is great! love the water drop on the tip of its beak too. great photo!
Your low pov with the bank in the foreground is superb and leads the eyes perfectly to this lovely wigeon (he is a new on to me!!) the focus and sharp detail is spot on and the drip of water on his beak is great...perfect colours.
Did you lay down for this one to get such a low pov?

This is a lovely "textbook" image showing the beautiful colors and marking of this duck. We have them near here but I've not managed such a close shot.
Evelynn : )
This is one of the best postraits of a male American Widgeon that I have seen. the sharpness, details and colours are all excellent and the pose and POV superb. You must have been able to get close to get this shot!
Well done and thanks for sharing,

Nice to meet you and thank you for your visit to my "Monarch and Sunflower"!!
As for the photo, you had captured well on both the Wigeon and ripples of water, they are beautiful!
perfect sharpness, vivid colour and details also the most informative notes!

My ignorance always led me to believe these were teals. I have some shots of them, so I am glad I never uploaded with the wrong ID. LOL.
A very good focused shot Penny. I like the feather details and the colours.
