  1. Lovely action shot! I love how you caught the underside opening feathers on the wing closest to you and the contrast of the top side feathers on the opposite wing.

    1. Thanks TT. I was really pleased with how it turned out. Especially as I was aiming for another bird. Life’s accidents are often some of the best moments.

  2. Beautiful photo, Jo! I love seeing the color on the duck’s wings and the beautiful green background makes the duck really stand out.

  3. Oh, I DO like this one! I like that there is another duck in the background, too. I understand that you were aiming for another bird and caught this guy instead. 🙂 How cool is that? The green makes a beautiful background and sets off that patch of blue on his wing. And the words are so true…sometimes that belief is a struggle. It matches the photo, too – you can just see all the energy this duck is putting into getting airborne!

      1. I think it works really well. I’m glad you didn’t trash it. There is so much texture and caught energy in this one. Yep, you’re right, it’s a FEMALE mallard duck. She is beautiful!
