« Of all the fowl that swim,
the Wood Duck is a most unusual bird.
They perch in trees like jaybirds,
and nest in tree holes like woodpeckers. »

Not really the most artistic work today friend Asbed, but fine simple image from your archives with goo natural colors and well implemented detail of the natural habitat of those birds. Good clarity, sharpness, contrast and brightness! Lovely!

bonjour Asbed
c'est toujours surprenant de voir des canards dans un arbre, mais, l'image est belle et j'aime la façon dont les deux carolins se regardent, excellente composition avec ce beau ciel bleu dans le BG
Passe une bonne nuit

It is nice to archive images o when things become available down the line, you and I can take advantage and end up with blue sky and white now!

Hello Asbed,
lovely capture of the ducks in good artistic composition. The branch and the sky really enhance the composition.
so sharp and so clear in details especially the head of the duck.
A well presented view.

Hello Asbed,
Nice capture of Mr and Mrs Wood Duck. Both are sharp and seen from a nice POV. Ilike very much the composition with the branches against the light clouded blue sky.
Thanks and kind regards,

wonderful photo my friend, very nice scene for such birds on branches!

Bonjour Asbed,

La grosse branche aide au cadrage de l'image. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des canards branchus. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
