I have one of those ducks on a mug, very beautiful :)

This is a gorgeous crisp shot that really brings out the patterns and colours of the male's plumage, and shows great depth too. The lighting is perfect, and I love how he really does stand tall and proud of his little lady, and how she is stood in his shadow which gives a sense of his protection over her <3 It's adorable.
I also love the snow, it's whiteness helps to further emphasise the duck's bright feathers, even the dark purple on his chest!

Amazing photo, keep up the brilliant work!
