hello, it's been few days i did not post a new photo
and today i decide to come with another
wood duck shot taken in spring, photo that i love

i'll be the first critique of this photo, i had to give
a little more space behind the male's taill,
but sometimes in the action we don't think
to all that and my eyes focus was more on the female

looking to this photo i am sure that the male
is telling him self « You're so cute o darling »
(hehehehe (laughing)

in spring when ducks photographing
i noticed that duck open their wings
when theire wing is wet by water,
so each time a duck was going under water
to find food or for something else
i newes that he will open his wing
and i was ready to take him in photo « open wings »

here is some links on the wood duck :

Salut Asbed,
Superbe titre pour une superbe photo!
La position des ailes est simplament parfaite et le mâle semble bien fier de sa compagne! Excllents détails et mouvement bien figé.

Hello Asbed,
Fine capture of a female Wood Duck stretching her wings while the male looks on. Excellent sharpness and composition with fine movement in the water including the reflection of the female.
Well done and TFS!

Salut Asbed,
C'est une beau moment que tu as capturé avec cette madame qui fait la belle. Ce sont de très beaux oiseaux et je comprends que tu aimes les photographier. La composition est bonne ainsi que les couleur et l'exposition. Merci!

Hi Asbed,
Hey, I thought it was the male that was supposed to be the show-off :)
Good detail, color, POV, and exposure. The bit of reflection adds as well.

So cute! ha ha
Love it....it's lively and happy and full of motion but not motion blur...just the feeling of motion.

Hi Asbed,
Nice shot of this pair of wood ducks. They are indeed very cute. I like the composition, the colours and reflections. For the first time there are a pair of them in my neighbourhood park mixed with the local mallards. I’m waiting for a sunny day to get some good pictures of them and share with you.
Regards, Mario


Bravo pour cette photo, j'aime bien le titre que tu as choisi. Les couleurs sont belles et tu as bien capturé ces ailes en mouvement.
