Very nice hen mallard, fotoi!

Nice capture, Eric! He surely has himself a good size nightcrawler for lunch.

Beautiful iridescent green color on this close-up mallard head, Tom! You certainly got close to this guy! Nice shot!

Thank you, Mike.

So true. It must've been a solid 5 minutes of trying to gather the silly thing in its beak before it came up with that mouthful :D well deserved meal, for sure

.
This is such a "clean" image, with no unsightly distractions in the background, such as out of focus branches right behind the bird's head, "sky holes", etc. . The background is beautiful and actually makes it a better portrait, instead of making it worse. . I love it because of that!

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

These are both gorgeous, Shortaction! Excellent work!

Very nice sharp image, Bill! This bird stands out so well with the excellent background...very lifelike.
