Photographer's Note

Well, those of you who've read about Harry Potter will know what I'm on about, those who haven't - go get the book ;-)). Taken at the local pond a few days ago. Around this part of the pond there's a thin line of reeds with the pond on one side and - this time of year - water on the other side near the pathway, too. The mallards sometimes move into the shallow water on the path side, but they clear out immediately, when someone approaches. Usually, they just slip through the reeds, which isn't a very spectacular occurrence - if you're fast, you may get a photo of the back end of a mallard disappearing amongst the reeds, that's it. But this one for reasons known only to herself decided to take the "high road", not through but *above* the reeds. Unfortunately, she chose to do her marvellous stunt up against the reeds and so close to them that they're fairly much in focus, too. This is not the best background for setting her off - I apologize for that, but with birds you rarely get to choose neither moment nor background. You just take what you get..
Treatment: Crop, contrast +10, saturation +10, USM and resize.
