[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Mallard ( /ˈmćlɑrd/ or /ˈmćlərd/), or Wild Duck (Anas platyrhynchos), is a dabbling duck which breeds throughout the temperate and subtropical Americas, Europe, Asia, and North Africa, and has been introduced to New Zealand and Australia.
The male birds have a bright green or blue head, while the female's is light brown. The Mallard lives in wetlands, eats water plants, and is gregarious. The Mallard is the ancestor of most domestic ducks, and can interbreed with other species of genus Anas. Among close relatives of the Mallard this hybridisation can cause genetic dilution, which is contributing to the decline of rarer species of ducks.

Szia Joska,
Gyönyörű felvétel erről a szembe repülő tökésrécéről!A tűéles fejjel ellentétes bemozdult szárnyak,jól érzékeltetik az igyekvő réce sebességét a pillanatokra kővé merevedett aljzat fölött.A csörében logó hal,a nagy fogás jelképe teszi igazén gazdaggá a képet.-Gratula
Kellemes,szerencsés hétvégét-Tibi

Ez egy csodálatos capture, úgy néz ki, mintha ez a kacsa fog repülni egyenesen neked! Voltál egy hajón? Nagyon érdekes kijelző, i like it!

another perfect shot of a flying bird. nice sharpness and composition, colour is also perfect.

Salut Joska,
O captura deosebita cu aceasta rata in zbor. Detaliile ca de obicei sunt foarte bune.
Apa pare inghetata bocna....
Numai bine.
Marius.
