Nice to see the colors on this tiny duck-very pretty. I think they are usually fast and hard to get close to, so kudos for this close view.

Another beauty, Axel - but I think your previous one will take some beating!

Nice head turn , details and exposure on one of my favorite ducks. I always have trouble with the whites, but these look pretty good.
