Hello Patryk,
First, a warm welcome to TN.
Wood ducks are some of my favorite animals too, as you would find out if you looked at my portfolio.
We once had a wood duck that came and stayed at our neighborhood lake for months, amidst the migrating mallards and Canadian geese. I named him Waldo. : )
Anyway this is a fantastic shot, full of movement and tension, with the sharp details and rich colors coming out through the spray.
A fantastic composition.
TFS. : )
Best wishes to you and your family for a Happy 2008!
