Hello friends, the beautiful mallard duck drake.

1/1600s f/5.6 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


« Mallards can be found in almost any wetland habitats,
including permanent wetlands such as marshes, bogs,
riverine floodplains, beaver ponds, lakes, reservoirs,
ponds, city parks, farms, and estuaries.

They also occur in prairie potholes and ephemeral wetlands;
they may be found feeding along roadside ditches, pastures,
croplands and rice fields. »

Bonjour Asbed,
Contente de te revoir sur TN, tu as dû avoir quelques difficultés..une belle image de ce card colvert plein de vivacité. Belle lumière et bonne netteté.

Hi Asbed,
Unbelievably nice photo. Your timing was great and you captured the rightest moment, above all the fast exposure you used was absolutely satisfying. Excellent composition with the model looking inside the frame, fantastic pose, great lights and colors... One of your very best mallard captures. Bravo!

Bonsoir Asbed,

Tuas bien capturé l'action du canard. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du canard colvert mâle. L'image est claire et nette. La bonne luminosité met en valeur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.


Hello Asbed
Awesome timing on capturing this mallard showing off his colourful wings. Mallards even though common are very showy. Excellent sharpness and light.
