Thism duck is feeling a strange presence, is alert observing all around...the strange thing is me, occult behind reeds and iris plants. Maybe see a non habitual silhuete or shadows and stop maybe 15 meters from me.
I did nosie broken a dry little branch and fly away, turning around and watching me later.

This is an individual of yellow-billed spintail or pato maicero in spanish (Anas georgica)

Hello Hernan,
Très belle composition avec ces reflets de roseaux dans l'eau, comme une peinture absraite. Et un magnifique canard! La lumière était idéale et les couleurs sont très naturelles.
J'aime beaucoup

Ciao Hernan, magnifica composizione con una deliziosa paperella, meravigliosi i colori, fantastici i riflessi, bravo, cioa Silvio

A very colorful bird shot Dear Hernan, I like a lot the reflections and the depth of field that reduces the patterned background effect of the reeds. Great shot indeed. Thanks for sharing.

Hola Hernan.

Excelente toma de un maravilloso pato que no conocia con ese cuello tan estilizado.
Los reflejos son buenisimos.

Hi Hernan
I really like the reflection of all the colours and textures in the water and the way you captured the entire duck and including his reflection. The colour of the duck goes so nice with the colour of the surrounding vegetation. The yellow beak adds more interest. This is well put together Hernan.
