Photographed at a local pond in the morning. After this male noticed me, he stretched the neck to prove that the name is correct. :)

Nice colors and details. Yes, that ring is easily visible.

Love the eye details in these ducks. Again a nice glow with the lighting Axel. Beautiful shot.

My favorite duck and you captured it beautifully. Great light, BG and perspective. And, the ring is icing on the cake.
