    One of the local ponds I photograph in all the time is actually a
    Public garden with a lot of beautiful plants. The Wood Duck population
    is basically home grown and tame. Allows for all my close-ups, sort of cheating....

    You've nailed the wing position, sharpness and background - Dan. The only thing I'd change is maybe warm up the WB a touch, but other than that, this is a stunner!

    Killer color in that background. Great flight pose as well.

    Another beautiful BG. I love the wing position.
    Image is nice and sharp.
    I see a little line on the LH edge of frame about 1 1/2 inches above the D in Dan. ? cloning artifact. Easy fix.
    A beautiful frame Dan.
