    Every year we have hundreds of Mallards, Canadian Geese and Swans that converge on the mouth of the Moira River in Belleville, Ontario. This photo is a female Mallard coming in for a landing where a passer-by had tossed down some feed.

    I like the blur of the wings and the simplicity of their color. I know it's not something you have much control over, but the beak doesn't look very sharp.

    Nice capture, but even the flickr version was a bit small for viewing?

    HoboSyke - Right above the photo on the Flickr page is a magnifying glass that says "all sizes" You should be able to see the whole thing right up to the 3972 x 2792 Original :D

    Thanks everyone else for your comments!
