This is a Mandarin duck that I shot through a chain-link fence at our local park. I was very lucky to catch him on the shore and was able to use the pond as the background. This was one of the hardest shots I have ever had do to the fact that I had to shoot through the fence and he was near the base of it. The angel to get the photograph was a hard one. Plus I had to use my 200 lens in order to shoot through the fence. My regular lens couldn't get past the fence. The vignette effect is from the fence but I love how it turned out. I loved this image so much I had it printed as a 16x20 for my own house and it is beautiful on metallic paper!

Hi Angela!
I chose this one for my feature here: [link] because this is absolutely one of my favorite shots from you ever! The colors are awesome and the angle is REALLY cool. It turns this from a regular duck pic to something really interesting to fun to look at. Like is said...one of my favorites from you =D
