What a lovely capture. This teal almost looks like it is posing for you. The detail in the feathers is amazing. Perhaps a tiny bit soft on the head. Very good nevertheless.
It's the Photographer that takes the Photo not the Camera.

Yes it does, I agree with Jacqui. It does look like it's posing for you. I love the detail in its feathers. Great capture.

It is interesting to see this bird Jenny...it is very similar to our Australian Wood Duck....the patterns are very alike, but some of the colours are different......they also have a similar shape and are also perching birds.....nicely captured.....I like the pink legs and feet.....SmileAlan

A very nice image of the duck Jenny, i would have liked a wee bit more space in front of it but i have a thing about space. I think the slight softness of the image is due to the way you have uploaded the image, if you resize the image before you upload it and make it round about 100 - 130kb it should look fairly close to how you view your images before upload, just a thought.

Thank you all for your kind comments & guidance. The image has now been adjusted, so I think you will find the head is sharper than before.

Thanx again Smile
