This Pacific Black Duck came for a closer look while I was sitting at the edge of a lake in Bendigo taking photos of dragonflies. I just had to take his potrait!
I wish the eye was just a tad brighter but other then that I love this photo! very relaxed!

What a rich color and the composition is well done!

Nice detail and colour on this one. Like Chuck says, it will be nice to see the ducks returning to Ontario.

I would've commented on the dragonfly(love it), but had a very busy day. Nice story with the duck(and photo).

This shot came out very well! The colour and detail are amazing, but what I really like it how you cropped the shot.

Sorry, messed up that last comment... I agree, he is framed quiet well in the shot. Such a peaceful looking creature. Another great shot David, thanks!
