Photographer's Note

Mallard (Anas Platyrhynchos)

This female is extremely photo shy (her, more colourful, "husband" is even shyer and almost impossible to catch on film). I managed to capture this photo by slowly crawling towards her, every time she put her head under the water (eating sea grass). I can tell that she wasnít fond of the flash :-)

Due to bad light (late afternoon) and use of the highest zoom level (without a tripod) the quality of this photo isnít 100%.

--------------------------------
Auto level (contrast) applied and brightness increased. Cloning tool where used to remove some dust and scratches. Finally a black border was added.
