    I love how the reflection in the water is feather-like. You’ve really captured some personality here, Eliza!

    Awww. What a beautiful portrait! I love the swirl of water in the background. (In answer to one of your comments on my blog, water is my favorite element, too.)

      Thanks, Kim. This lovely mallard had such a calm presence amid a lot of activity and chaos. She looked right at me as if she knew exactly why I was taking her photo!

  13. Beautiful! You’re an excellent photographer. 🙂

  14. Aw, handsome little guy you caught there. 🙂

  15. Debra says:

    Beautiful. I just love the active background.

  16. Very cool – I love the background!

  17. This is so cute!! I love animals and love how your picture is artistic looking! You have great skills! The background looks almost like a painting. Her bright orange feet are so pretty. It sort of looks like she’s wearing rain boots! Lol And it’s so engaging how she is looking up at you.
    Do animals like this stay around all year? Do they have a place to go when it gets frozen? I see ducks around occasionally, especially in New Jersey, but I have no idea where they go for weather that isn’t suitable for them.

      Thank you, Kim. Ha-ha, she does look like she is wearing rain boots! I expect wild ducks require open water at all times, even in winter, so must migrate southwards until they find it. They are vulnerable to predators when on land.
