[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have seen Gerts pictures of all kinds of Drakes. Mostly flying. So today when I got my new toy (EOS 350D) and found lots of Drakes I couldnīt miss the chance to try it out. I think I got one pose that not even master Gert has shown us :-). Hope you like it.

For more info about these birds, visit Gert. I donīt have anything to add.

What a pose, and so unlike most on TN. A fantastic shot, great detail.
Well done and TFS

Well done on this capture and composition. Excelent work.


Very good timing Urban. Great capture with very good colours, clever handling of the light just avoing to burn the white, dof/sharpness is very good and the reflection in the water makes it perfect.

I like the composition and the pose you have captured here Urban, nicely exposed with good vibrant colours.

Urban, Nice shot, really like this stretch pose..Great light & colors..Well done!

Great timing to get this pose. A good exposure with some nice reflection in the water. A unique one here.

Magnifique capture. Joli pasition de ce colvert.

I like this photo because it's not the usual duck flying in the sky, nor swimming on the water....this pose is unique.

Very unusual shot. Nice.
