Bu harika ördeğin çok başarılı bir karesi. Renkler ve netlik müthiş güzel.
Bu güzel türün av hayvanı ya da ticari meta olarak görülmesi çok üzücü.

Dit zijn altijd mooie eendjes, je komt nog al eens in Avifauna?
In het wild zie je ze het beste in de meijendel, bij wassenaar

Wow what a gorgeous duck. I love that big red eye, head and beak. Wonderfully focused and the great light brought out some wonderful details.
Taken in excellent lighting this male Red.headed Pochard was captured with top sharpness and superb saturated colours froma a fine POV to give very good eye contact.
You must have been quite close to get such a great shot with a 300mm lens.
Does this species now breed in Holland?
In Sweden it is only seen in parks, unless it is a vagrant.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hi Peter,this drake is sure one handsome looking fellow and his red eye is a wonder, out-standing! You have very sharp details and brilliant colour saturation bring out the best in the image.He reminds me of our redhead ducks here in Alberta only with red instead of orange eyes,both ducks are lovely.Thanks for giving us this fine fellow for the viewing.

A pleasure to have found your gallery of fantastic bird photos. This portrait is exceptional. I love the colours & reflection in contrast with the subdued, slightly rippled pond. Sharp, sharp focus for this bobbing pochard. Congrats to you on this fine moment in nature.
