Mallard Drake


Mallard Drake, originally uploaded by Hannibals Animals.

With not much of anything happening of the wild kind, I settled on getting the shine of this mallards head. He got vocal in the middle of the shoot, which made for a more interesting photo.

Yes a nice shot, it's nice that he got vocal ;-) Not so easy to do with a snowy background

They are a nice duck with that beautiful green head they have.

Awh, he looks sleepy :) He is probably dreading the long migration.

Exceptional detail & sharpness!

Beautiful picture. It's weird for me to see them in the snow. Tell them to come down to Florida.
