A very difficult subject to get right, what with black and white plumage: however you have exposed the duck to perfection capturing such excellent detail in the whites, Sylvia. Beautifully set within the frame too. I have to admit this duck ids a new one to me completely......I have never heard of it or seen it.

I love this duck's colour scheme, very modern and minimalist WinkWink. And I love the split reflections. Great image.

Sylvia, this is by far your best yet and what has to be the hardest of all to expose on and retain total detail. This you have performed to perfection from detailing the whites and buff all the way through to the eye with catchlight. Great low leve laying as you did in the prone position to get the reflection
Top capture all round
Let you off with the fact that you used a Gorky bin liner Wink
