Drake in flight
|[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)

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

an amazing capture!
Fantastic in-flight shot of this Mallard.
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 :)
