Dear All,

I took this closeup capture from a Male Mallard at the local zoo. I was astonished to see this lovely mallard from that close distance.

The day was sunny and light is wonderful to expose the facial features of this colorful bird.

Hope you like it.

Best regards,

Hi Paras1
Good close-up of mallard, with the focus concentrated on the head and nice effect bokeh around. Excellent details and beautiful natural colours.
I believe that TN members do not appreciate the POV from above.
Congratulations on this pleasant composition.
Ciao! Vanda

Ciao MF paras. Impressive face to face. Detail and sharp perfect. Exciting colours.
