Mandarin Duck - fall reflections.
Done in Wabukayne Park Mississauga

Unfortunately the bird disappeared from the pond since yesterday. This evening I searched the place again without success. I was hoping he’ll spend the winter there…

Many thanks for your interest and comments on my previous postings.

Nicely done, Mario.
Pure gold. Fantastic portrait of a this Mandarin Duck. Beautiful through this probably specific autumn light but also technically well done in terms of sharpness, details, highlights and so forth.
I hope he'll come back:-)

Hello Mario

A stunning capture of this beautiful duck.
The reflections of autumn colours in the water is artistic and amazing.
Excellent focus and sharpness ,the plumage detail is fantastic.
Lovely light and colour saturation.
The eye catch light even shows in the reflection.
