A female Mallard, reflecting gold from the sun.

Not much more to say about it. It's from the archives, snowing today, it will be gone tomorrow, it's warming up to plus 7 with rain.

I love her hairdo, Fisher! :) Good shot. Great reflection and lovely, warm light. Well composed and sharp details. Well done & TFS!


Nice archive find Mike,
I know you probably get too much, but I can't wait for the snow to fall here. It's always promised, but all we end up with is grey skies and rain.
Nice capture, good detail, colour and sharpness.
Thanks for posting, have a good sunny and warmer weekend!

Hi Mike
Very sharp duck. Like how he's off centre and the slight reflection of his head. Pretty light too.
Regards Toni

Personal assessment of the photo: excellent.
Capacity of evocation in me: very strong.
Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: 0 C here, Snowing. Maybe I have to accept winter once more time in my life ;-)
Thank you very much Mike.

Hi Mike,
Still great weather here at the moment, cold (well cold for us, but not for you I suspect), but not a cloud in the sky.
Lovely shot of Mrs Mallard, nice warm colours and reflections.
Thanks for sharing.

Excellent capture of this duck! I very much like the composition and environment in this photo. Colors are great, POV and sharpness excellent. The light is great. TFS!
