Hi again everyone,

This is another photo that I took last week at the Spinnies. This time I was lucky enough to get the sun falling nicely onto the Mallard giving very nice bright colours and a nice reflection.
Hope you all like it.

Excellent photo of this Mallard taken from a very good low frontal POV. Pleasing eye contact. Good sharpness, details and splendid natural colours. Nice reflection on the water.

Hello Sion,
A very fine capture of a Mallard drake.
The frontal POV was taken with nice sharpness and DOF and the angle just right to show the full beauty of the green iridescence of the head that is nicely turned.
I also like the composition that includes the reflection in the water.
Thanks and regards,

Hi Sion.
Thank you for the welcome back. I have gone back to this picture taken in March. Being that i love bird pictures and this one shows bright lighting with natural colours. The male Mallard was moving fast but you were still able to capture a good reflction. Well taken.

Regars Nick..
