    Beautiful iridescence, great POV. Love the silky water. Maybe could have used a bit more DOF for rear feathers. Looks like I'll have to take a trip to Cambridge.

    Another winner from the "WOS". Love the water, pose, and colors. My only nit is that I would remove or tone down the two highlights in water under breast. Amazing number of duck species at this spot -- I may have to venture down at some point as well. TFS

    Another beauty John, you have a really good location there these ducks seem to be very well lit and show great detail.

    Hi John, love the light and colours on the head, and the sharpness is spot on. The feather detail looks really good too. You have built up quite a series lately - well done.

    I love it. Quite an appealing shade of blue too. Perfect head angle. Count me in as another who has filed this placed as a winter bucket-list bird photography destination.
