Mallard drake who was doing a lot of quacking to the other ducks.
There a nice image here..
You got the eye with a catch light in it that the light spot in the eye..
The colour in the feather look a like bit on the bright side this may be dew to the bright sun light...
Please leave a little room in front of the duck so it leaves the mind that it got room to move in to...
It looks like you got a nice nikon D7000 and a nice VR lens...
I would set camera to A for Apture and learn about depth of feild (DOF) A low F like 2.8 will blur very quickly outside focal area so it not sharp..
A high F like F22 You find it very sharp from front to back of image..
If it a bright day shutter will go quick a dull day shutter will stay open longer...
The key is finding right shutter speed and right F stop of the image...
Do not over do the colours on birds or animals..
but you might need to boost them in some images if a little dark...
I can go on....
Just take your time and understand your camera and you get better very quickly...
This duck was part of a larger group, I managed to find a button on the camera that zoomed in When I had my film camera Olympus OM40 I did get to grips with apertures and depth of field. Since owning DSLRs been a bit lazy getting to know the camera.
I have a Tamron 70 - 300 with macro and also a Tamron macro - lens details escape me at the mo Thanks
Good pose but the quality's rather low. Looks like it might be a very small crop from a much larger image?
Yes it was Dave
