Mallard Portrait

This was taken at a local wetland area where there’s a boardwalk path and people feed the ducks, so they’re not shy of people and I was able to get close.

Allen, I really like how the bird is resting/sleeping, but keeping the eye open in case of danger. Well done capture. I think the comp is really nice. I wouldn’t change a thing.

Excellent pose, with great shadow detail and color. I love the small amount of the bill showing.
