He's Ready for His Close-Up


Mr. Mallard was kind enough to stay perfectly still while took this close-up shot of him as he sat at the edge of the fountain in the Scottsdale Civic Center Park.


His friend on the other hand, jumped in the water and swam away.  He doesn't know I got the shot anyway.

My favourite shots are always close-ups because detail are so clear. This bird's beauty is enhanced with a close portrait.

That first shot is one terrific macro. And I like the 2nd shot, too. Mallards are pretty ducks.
