Wow. Beautifully captured field marks. Warm early light makes this guy shine! Really eager to get after the ducks again.. but this zero degree weather in Kansas is rough

Great shot with loads of detail (when clicked on). Warm light indicates late afternoon or early morning shot - nice!

Superb image, David. The colors and warm light could not be better, and your positioning of the Teal within the frame is perfect. Congratulations on this beauty!

I would be so happy to just see a page full of raptors and ducks, two of my very favourite subjects! This beautiful teal is so expertly captured and is a real pleasure to view, David. The pose, detail and light are all superb, and the image is gorgeous.

Wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Carol.
