Mallard Duck (Male) In Early Morning Light

Early one morning, as the sun was coming up, I went to one of our local parks to photograph the Mallard Ducks. The light in certain places on the pond was cast in shades of blue. This male Mallard seemed quite interested in my camera and came over to check me out. The light was perfect :) I intentionally underexposed these shots by 1 to 2 stops to give the scene more of a dramatic look and to intensify the colours. I do like the results.
