    Nice light and low POV.
    The still water has given you a nice reflection.
    I wish we could see the ring on this ring-necked duck.
    The head (eye/forehead) is not tack sharp to my jet-lagged eyes. I can't decide if head is or isn't sharp. I will let others weigh in!

    Hi Gail, welcome back. Thank you for viewing and commenting. I worked on the image again this morning and reposted it. I think it is improved. Not sure why but these ducks always look a little funky, especially the eye. Thanks again.

    The reflection is nice. Also like the ripples in the water. Looks sharp to me.
