Long Tailed duck swimming the inlet at Barnegat Light, NJ. The slack tide produced unusually calm water this day, allowing for some wonderful reflections.

Hello Eric.
Very pretty shot.This is such an amazing view. Very pure and sharp shot. Well done.
Best regards Siggi

ERIC!! Wonderful reflection indeed, this and perfect white balance and an image of my first long-tailed duck! Love the POV and that pink beak!


Wish I could get results with my 80-400mm Nikon lens that you have obtained here! Would like to have seen the eye a bit clearer but incredible true blue water, etc.


perfect capture of this majestic duck, TFS Ori

Hi Eric,

Wonderful shot! Great colors and sharpness. The reflection in the dark blue water is subtile. TFS.


Hi Eric

The haze like Background creates a beautiful surreal and still atmosphere for your portrait of this rather unique looking duck. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent capture & presentation, superb sharpness!
TFS, Ferran
