hello Eleu ~
i don't normally fall for bird or duck shots, but the colors and patterns in your photograph have me coming back to it again & again. it's lovely and unusual, the water has the appearance of those gorgeous venetian marbelized papers. but really, it is the shades and colors in the water that are so astonishing, offset by the magnificence of star of the scene ~ nicely seen and captured :)

Gorgeous colours and contrast! A delightful to get a reasonable photo of this handsome duck and close enough to register some fine detail in the plumage of the adorable bird. Very sharp, great light and the mouth watering golden water reflection. This is indeed a first class wildlife shot Eleu. My congrats

I didn't have any smilies left yesterday but this one certainly needs a comment. The duck is as attractive as always but above all it's surrounded by marvellous colors. The many shades of green, yellow and orange are superb.
