Strange observation: If you back away from the screen a bit and stare intently at the beak for a while, you might see someone in white robes sitting cross legged in front of a brown background.

Just beautiful. Getting down to its level was the perfect approach. I like how you captured its eyes and the calm water in front and the waves behind. Great job.

Great shot and nice perspective... can't tell if that's an intent or crazed look in his eyes

A nice low point of view looking at this Duck, and also with a reflection.

This is going to sound silly but is the reflection done in pp? Just doesn't look 100% realistic to me, but that could be too much wine tonight
