Adrienne said...

Your lily pads have a very MONET feel to them (he's my favorite, so that's meant as a compliment!) and then that great duck just pops so sharply right out of the shot! LOVE this!

Debbie said...

i am soooo glad you did not crop this. the water, the lily pads are almost as gorgeous as the duck itself....ALMOST!!

BEAUTIFUL, wonderful image of the male Wood Duck Brian. Happy weekend~

Gail Dixon (LaBelle) said...

He's a beauty and really stands out against the purple lily pads and lime green tones in the water. Sweet little ripple in front of him, too.

Ruth Kelly said...

It is as if I am looking at two birds in the water.

Kay said...

I hate to mindlessly repeat what's been said already, but it's so true: this is an awesome shot, beautiful, breathtaking. These are such gorgeous ducks and the setting is none too shabby, either. Wow!

Love it!

Ida said...

These ducks are fascinating to see. The really do look as if they are made out of wood. I just love the way the water ripples and the lily pads resemble a watercolor painting. It's just a wonderful photo all the way around.

Love the clarity of the duck against the Monet water scene.

Lovely shot with beautiful duck. The water surface has painting qualities. Thanks for showing.

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

That is one duck I have yet to see in person, what an awesome capture with all the reflections on the water.

Amy Burzese said...

So many qualities in this image. The reflections are outstanding. I am curious as to how many of your water/water foul images are taken from a boat.

Madge Bloom said...

All I can say is 'Wow,' you take some of the most amazing bird images I've ever seen... I hope you're selling them, if not, you should!

Awe! We have wood ducks here but I've yet to see such a great capture of one as this one.
