What kind of duck is your duck? Beautiful colouring...I love the how the colouring of the duck contrasts with the colour of the water. You make a good duck photographer!

It is a "Anas platyrhynchos" or "Mallard-Duck" is the most common of all, you'll see both in Europe and USA because it is a widely grown variety, but that does not mean there are many that are vulgar, in contrast, are ducks with beautiful plumage seems crystal or velvet, are very beautiful and animals in this park "Buen Retiro" in Madrid are an institution. Thanks for the compliment, is taken with a Reflex camera and it shows the jump in quality.

It's a very interesting photo...it must be the beautifully coloured water that the duck is swimming through...I viewed it in full-screen mode, absolutely stunning.

You see, when you are there think "if I fall to the water dying of typhus" and yet the picture looks nice that color. Thank you very much but the merit of the photo it is definitely the duck.

Of course it's the duck...if it wasn't for the duck, it would be a picture of just nicely coloured water...with nothing to compliment it as the duck does.

The dirty water is not garbage, I might add, but on algae, is a beautiful pond in the heart of the city.
