Pacific Black Duck

Pacific Black Duck (Image ID 40909)
CommentI choose this image as it shows the delicate features of this very common bird. I am pleased with the contrasting background and how it brings the muted colours of the bird to the fore. I also like being able to see small features such as the black tip on his bill that looks to me like lipstick and the nostrils.
