Ha ha.. an angry pochard? A very amusing thought indeed! Geese and swans are often angry but wild ducks are timid - and they should be kept off the kitchen table BTW - IMNSHO.

Good close up from some distance.
Good representation of the red eye!
Another proof of the outstanding quality of the 50-200 lens!
Greetings
