Wildlife photography is my passion .... I usually submit birds of one kind or another to the challenges. I photograph my entries deliberately... they are not shots I just happen to have and am trying to make them fit the challenge.
Not a lot done to this shot. cropped, saturated color, levels done... NI and sharpened for web.

I am very pleased with my score.. and the wonderful comments I recieved.. thanks so much.

Gorgeous watercolor effect. The waters texture is stunning and the shades on the ducks head are beautiful.

Sensuous. Mr. Mallard's shiny luminous/metallic round head vis a vis the oily round swirl of red gold reflection...

I like the silkiness of the water! Love how the duck and the reflection are both in such sharp focus.
