This very nice Duck became very tame as people feed the Ducks and Swans, including him.
However I noticed that the Mallards are very aggressive towards him during feeding.
I don't know how long he can put up with it.

Karl, a beautiful setting with the water breaking at the shoreline, and I love the brownish tones throughout the image. The Pintail is spectacular and the image quality is superb! Excellent work!

+1.  Agree with everything Ron stated. In addition, when you have this type of opportunity you have to strike when the iron is hot, which you certainly did here !!

I also agree with everyone, a really beautiful image with warm tones, beautiful light,
incredible details and the pleasant movement of the water.

Beautifully done, as always, Karl! Such a smart looking duck and lovely content in the frame with the water line and complementary colours.
