In this photo I tried to fit the symmetry of the duck and the consequence of it in the water. Photo taken off in the Horto Florestal of Rio Claro/SP. I have some other photos of there, later i rank here. Hugs...

Nice shot, it would have been nice to leave more space in front....
Focus a bit soft.

I like the fact that I can see the duck's left foot in the water. Good job Marcelo.

Hi Marcelo
Nice Moscovy duck, and a native of your country to boot. This is good, as there is some questions on this duck being domesticated. So are thousands of our flowers, but they are stil "wild" from SA, as this bird is Indigenous to S AM! I post this so that there can be no misunderstanding about this being a domesticated duck. They fall in the same category as Mute Swans and Greylag goose, many domesticated, but still "wild" in their original habitats!
Nice picture, but give us some info please!

Good job an the blacks here. The reflection is nice and I like the composition. As a child, one of these bit (pinched) me and I must say it is a lasting memory.

Very well done and thanks for posting

Good capture of a wild Muskovy duck it is very nicley seen for comfirmation of ident see here and this is the domestic sort normally seen in parks and lakes around towns and cities.
It is definatley a good capture as a true wild Moscovy seem to be uncommon.
thanks to Callie for helping me confirm this ident.

I like the reflection of this duck, being able to see his feet in that reflection enhances the photo. well done.
