108/365 Mallard under willow tree

I’ve been editing some images recently and came across this one I took last autumn.  I really like this image as its so rich in textures and colours. Its of a drake Mallard and is very chilled out sitting underneath this over hanging Willow tree.

Mallard, Anas platyrhynchos, Gloucestershire. 2011.
Canon 1d MkIV with Canon 500mm f/4  L IS lens.

As always, please click on the image to enlarge.

  1. Hi Joanna. Ive just checked my processing on this one and I’ve hardly touched it. Ive increased the blacks by 10% and increased the saturation by 3%. It was the last light of the day so the scene was really saturated anyway. The Willow tree just glowed. It is a fantastic tree to photograph in the autumn, especially when there are birds underneath it. I’ll process a reflection in the water for todays post.
