what a great portrait of this tufted duck. The yellow eye comes out really great . I like the angle under which you managed to 'shoot' the duck. Because the tuft is behind the head it almost seems like a bald tufted duck :-)

The eye and the beak are amazing. Beautiful colors and razor-sharp details. A really nice shot.

Deborah! This is an incredible shot. Your focus is so good. It sure gives us an eye full of details. Looks like he is sticking the tongue out?
I sure like the colourings on this duck. TFS.
Nice weekend to you.

The clarity in this shot is immpeccable!
It is so sharp and detailed!
You obviously take good care of your kit :)
+++ Very good focusing keeping that bright yellow eye perfectly in focus.
Excellent composition and POV.
Superb eye contact.
--- Nothing at all :)
Well done Debz,
p.s. there is a large group of Tufted Ducks in an old gravel pit near where I live. I often go there and I try to photograph these little ducks but I can't get anywhere near them because they paddle away whenever I get close.
Do you have any techniques on sneaking up on them or something?

Splendid shot of this beautiful duck with awesome details on its shining plumage and nice colours. Superb lighting and exposure. The yellow eye shine and transfixes the viewers eyes. the rippled waters look fine and presents a perfect BG. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

We get plenty of Tufted Ducks here too. I think they'r great fun to watch. It's amazing how long their necks get when they stretch like this one is doing! Excellent capture in nice light that makes the plumage glisten. Great sharpness and fine colours too.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Perfect exposure on those difficult black feathers. I love the bright yellow eye. The low POV is perfect, it looks like you are in the water with it

what an eye!
Very clear, well lighted, composed image in pleasant subtle colours. Interesting and pretty species that I cannot remember to have seen before. Looks quite exotic, funny and a little bit weird.
Thank you! My best regards,

Very good photo of this beautiful duck. Focus, sharpness, colors, POV and composition are very nice. The eye looks great. TFS
it amazes me yet that in one of the world's largest urban areas you can still see animals like this pretty boy,that is a positive sign.Your photos give us all hope for our wild friends as they can adapt to our artificial world and flourish.Here in Canada we do have these ducks as well but I have yet to see one as they are fairly rare here.He has a vivid eye and your capture of him shows good detail,colour and focus. Thanks for giving us this view,I'm fond of ducks of all sorts. Bob
