Another scene of the nourishing vortex captured in the limit of the Ecological Reserve Costanera Sur.

In spite of the recommendation of the guards of the Reserve, of not feeding the wild animals (and less with bread, than they produce some digestive problems and excess to them of weight), youngest, they delight doing it.

In the image, they are possible to be appreciated Red-gartered Coot -Fulica armillata- and Picazo Ducks -Netta peposaca- (the brown ones are females and the one of red peak is a male) trying to arrive before the rest at the food free.

"I saw two ducks... walking on the water!" (Sorry, Nina Simone) The colours and DOF are much better than the 1st one. I love those "dancing ducks" Wonderfull moment captured here, Ricardo. Thanx.

lovely capture Ricardo,
Very good composition, good colours, and very good cropping, with a good note made three points, very good job.

Well captured shot, love the way that the ducks are all focused on something which is out of shot.

For me,the star here is the duck at the front with its beak wide open!

It's like a 'spot the ball competition'! Excellent action shot woth humour too. The exposure detail and use of DOF are all exceptional. Well done Ricardo.

Tis one is more funny than the previous one, those open bills look like they are laughing. Well done.

Beautiful and funny shot, Ricardo - I like how almost all of them are oriented upwards, some with their beaks open in order not to miss out on anything ;-) Great colors. It looks almost like a competition, but it might also be I've just watched too much of the Olympic Games on TV lately :-)

Looking at the angle of all the heads and eyes it should take around a minute to triangulate the exact position of the food! Very nice clear capture and I enjyoed it. Thanks

Very nice bunch of birds.The more I like coots.
How to name the two rates brown.
