Bahama Pintail by KeldBach Bahama Pintail by KeldBach
Found a nice little pond a few kilometers outside of town with a broad variety of water birds. Among them this Bahama Pintail or White-Cheeked Pintail (Anas bahamensis), which is native to the Caribbean and South America. The sexes look very similar, so I don't know whether it's a male or a female. Also see:

What an impressivly clear shot. I usually don^t fancy duck-photographs. They often seem not very expressive somehow to me. But Here I like the sharpness and the mood of this water being as blank as a mirror! Also the light seems perfect and I like the focus (fading away at the ducks tail) as well as the colours. - and of course the perfect mirror image of the duck in the water!
:clap:

Well done, keep the awesome art up!!

Wow. This is about as good as it gets, in just about every way, the light, (exposure) the reflection and the detail are all spot-on. Photos like this keep the rest of us humble.
