[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos), also known as the wild duck, is a dabbling duck which breeds throughout the temperate and sub-tropical areas of North America, Europe and Asia. Probably the best-known of all ducks, it gave rise to most domestic ducks, apart from the Muscovy Duck.
It is strongly migratory in the northern parts of its breeding range, and winters farther south; it is one of the species to which the Agreement on the Conservation of African-Eurasian Migratory Waterbirds (AEWA) applies. It also frequents Central America and the Caribbean, and has been introduced into Australia and New Zealand.
In captivity, Mallards come in wild-type plumages, white, and other colours. Most of these colour variants are rare but increasing in domestic collections.
Mallards are hunted and eaten as game. The flesh has a stonger flavour than that of the more commonly eaten domestic ducks.(wikipedia.com)

Salut Mircea

Inca o superba poza "in-flight" de la tine.
Pe mine ma uimeste ce calitate reusesti sa scoti din lentila aia...Personal am vazut ca a primit recomandari foarte favorabile de la multa lume, sar probabil cel mai convingator fapt e rezultatul, iar unul de genul asta e impecabil.
Claritatea si detaliile sunt excelente iar daptul ca doar varful aripilor sunt "in miscare" dau impresia vitezei reale a lucrului.
Foarte bine compusa si realizata!

Bravo si TFS

Hi Mircea,
an amazing capture!
Fantastic in-flight shot of this Mallard.
Well done,

A great action shot! You have managed to focus on the mallard perfectly. Great colours too, however the image could be a little sharper. I created a workshop :)
