Lovely soft light and bg, with a nice, sharp, attractive subject. I like it!
Good light,
Craig

The low perspective and sweet light are wonderful, Peter. Plus, the background complements the duck perfectly. Excellent image.

I really like the way the colors of the duck compliment the background colors. The female Wood Ducks don't get enough attention - except from the male Wood Ducks of course!!!

I've grown to love photographing the female Woodies as much as the males. This is a fabulous frame -- the water blends in seamlessly with the bg and matches the bird very well. Excellent!
