A Mallard duck at Wakehurst Place in Sussex hiding behind some daffodils.
It's Daffy Duck!! well taken.
A good capture with a certain humorous appeal, well done. The colours just work well together although the beak appears to have lost some. Darren, if you have a "dodge tool" in your photo progame, set it to highlights at around 5% and keep clicking on the catch-light in his eye until your happy, this will have a good effect by adding that twinkle. It's what the pro's sometimes use in portrait shot's.
Splendid shot - I like the mood of this.
beautiful like him with the flowers
I'm surethat this duck was a model in another life!
well taken shot!
Thanks for the comments everyone.

I did get the impression he was modelling, for a few shots before his head was lower down and then he popped his head up and stayed still for the shot
Martin - also thanks for your comments - yeah it is a shame about the beak, I was actually out trying out my macro lens for the first time so wasn't looking for things as large as a duck so could have done with a better aperture - I will also look at those post processing ideas, I am using Lightroom so can use the brush for those.
