[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
I have captured this 'Hottentot Teal' (Spatula hottentota) at Marievale Bird Sanctuary early in the morning.

Hottentot Teal is a small dabbling Duck. It's a migratory resident in Ethiopia, Nigeria, Sudan, Namibia, South Africa etc.

Hello Srikumar,
My first thought was a type of widgeon, but I see it is a species I'm not familiar with. Eye catching image revealing exceptional detail and beautiful colors. Fantastic eye contact and perfectly exposed. A real beauty!!

Ciao Srikumar, great capture of lovely bird, fascinating reflections, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Srikumar,
Excellent image with a lovely duck specie. The details and focus are amazing as usual. Nobody can do better....(Nikon has excellent colors and details despite the rising prices....)
I just arrived from Danube Delta....an amazing natural habitat for birds.

Luxurious details of the plumage of this Spatula hottentota, great contact of eyes, delicate capture of the reflection of the bird on the surface of the water; and all dominated by a glorious light. Splendid photograph, Sri !!!!

Hi Srikumar,a very lucky light to have the best by this lucky opportunity. A species not often seen on TN,the colors of plumage are fantastic and the sharpness too,well done! Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

a real beauty, greetings Ori

Hi Sri,
If I remember well, I already saw this extraordinary duck in your gallery. But this photo's even more spectacular, with minimalistic yet very pleasant composition. I love the way how you put the duck into the frame, with a little, waving reflection. The plumage is tack sharp with plenty of details and good colors. Bombastic photo again, congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
