Ready For A Close Up

Today was an absolutely beautiful day. Winter is about to strike again tomorrow, so I decided to head out with my camera to see what I could see. I haven’t been feeling well, and still am not one hundred percent, so it was good to feel like I could get out and stretch my legs 1.

I was rewarded down by the river with male mallard who seemed to enjoy posing. He swam back in forth in front of my camera, giving me some excellent shots of his distinct plumage. The image below is my favorite from his photo shoot. I love how you can see the water being repelled from his feathers.

    That is the most beautiful picture of mr. Duck. I just wonder where is his mate.
