What a handsome duck!
Lisl: Very smart, Ray - the only one I have ever seen, I think
He wears those drops proudly...
Lisl: So he does - I bet he has just dived or ducked, Larry

Un j'aime bien les canards...comme dans la chanson...surtout celui-là  qui est très beau.
Lisl: Moi aussi! Ils sont tellement photogéniques
Lovely capture - and I like the patterns in the water!
Lisl: Whenever I take a picture of a water bird, I am surprised by the colours and patterns in the water, Elizabeth

Il est très beau, jolie lumière.

And with a red eye!
Lisl: I rather liked his eye, Ginnie!

It's a beauty. What a name, this canvasback.
Lisl: Apparently, the bird gets its name from the canvas-coloured body of the male. I am not sure that I get that

Red eyes always look a bit evil.
Lisl: Associated with the Devil, Chad
It is a lovely bird isn't it.
Lisl: Quite a little stunner, Brian
Aren't they a beautiful duck? You had perfect light for this very nice capture.
Lisl: I hoped you would like him, Mary

Even when Peter Scott was alive, I always wanted to go to Slimbridge; still never been! I like the red colouring of its neck.
Lisl: Well worth a visit, Alan, but would not recommend during the school holidays. Winter is good when the swans and geese come in from the Arctic
Wildfowl can make great pic's, we visited the Martin mere reserve again on Ell's last visit, you would like it there, didn't see one of these though.
Lisl: Yes, you can't seem to go wrong with them, Frank. I enjoy going down to the Somerset Levels
It has such beautiful colouring.
Lisl: He certainly was very bright and smart, Michael

This is an amazing duck and well-captured. I love the way his eye matches his coloring. I wonder where he shopped for that!
Lisl: Nothing like being colour-coordinated in a drake, Beth, thank you
