I have never heard of this breed, Lillian, but it is a strikingly plumaged duck with such an attractive face.
Very well captured in both.

Have to agree with Lynne on this Lillian, but it is still a delightful image with a fine eye. Have you tried reducing the "whites" and "highlights" sliders in the Camera Raw editor? There could be recoverable detail and it would be worth a try Wink
