G'Day Hans:

This photo has wonderful colors and composition. I'm not familiar with this species of duck, but he's a handsome quacker and sharp as the proverbial tack, with his eye twinkling like a diamond on a black velvet pillow. Given the aperture setting (f-10), I'd expect more DOF, but actually prefer the background OOF, isolating the main subject in center stage. Nice shot!

Hi Leon, thank you very much for your comment and suggestions. The Shelduck is in my area a rae Duck. I' am glad to catch one. Regards Hans
