Mandarin ducks in the dawn

  1. Found them in the middle of Berlin posing for me at the riverside of the Spree.
    Though already a bit dark, I was a happy shooter. :smile:

    "Who, me?"


    All in the row.

    They were enjoying the setting sun. (In my next life I'll be a pet, preferably a cat, that's for sure. Getting lodge and food for free, I could take sun bathes half the day and nobody would question it...)

    The amazing thing about these ducks is they always look soft when I take pictures of them, must be their feathers. (I hope).

  6. Cool! Would make a great hat :Crunk:

    I guess the softness may have to do with the Nyquist frequency? (Not that I know anything about that :Crunk:)
  7. Thanks, all.

    Probably. Didn't had the chance to examine their feathers closely yet. :smile:

    Nice shots Daniel, i love the last one. One small nit if i may? The colours seem drab?

    Not sure if its the light but the one's near me are much more brightly coloured.
  9. Well, as I said, in the dawn.... not the light for brilliant colours :cool:.
