    Technically superb, great great eye on the closest duck which elevates this into my top 10.

    Great natural color, and subjects so clear and sharp that they almost look like decoys. Nicely done. TT.

    Nice capture. Spot-on focusing and perfectly exposed. My only wish is that I could see more of the male (I assume the duck on the left) but you did well to get them both. In my TT.

    Shame the duck in the background's gorgeous face is obscured by the less attractive duck at front. Could be sharpened a touch also.
