Teardrop

By KingArthur
One from my Archive, shot taken last Winter while out doing some birding in really cold weather. This resident white Mallard already figured in some of my previous postings on EPZ, its plumage is really striking especially if captured in favourable lighting.

What I came to like in this frame, besides the head detail, are the small frozen droplets ringed together spaced out from the larger solitary droplet looking quite like a natural teardrop being shed ..... sometimes our cameras manage to freeze beautiful moments in time which are usually too fast for our eyes to grasp, this IS one such instance. Thought I'd share this with you as a Sunday treat Smile

Viewing large is recommended.

Enjoy your day,
Joe Smile
