Rich saturated colour so I thought, 'polarizer?], but probably not. That rich solid orange on his tail looks great with the white trim and the blue. You delivered a real beauty here. TG

Very beautiful duck. Loved by our friend Gwynn above who features them regularly.
You've isolated him very well and the orange in rocks ads to the harmonious feel.

It never ceases to amaze me what Nature can create, Ed. Take the Big O, for example.Grin
A beautiful vibrant splash of (very many) colours to brighten up a dull day.
