Hi Leon,
From the two postings I prefer this one , nice colours and sharp exposed..
Its a very heavy duck , guess she has eggs...?
The twig could have cloned out with a little work it's a distracting object IMO...;-))
Best regards.........Fons

Fons -

Yes, this is the sharper/cleaner of the two, no doubt; cropping as I did with the other image impairs the IQ quite a bit - but in a pinch it's like having an inexpensive telephoto lens.

Yes; she's a heavy one but I don't know if she's about to lay her eggs or not. As for the twig, you're right it's right in the way. The duck was so tame I figured I'd just move it out of the way, but right about then she decided she'd posed enough and went for a walk ;-)

Ciao -
