I like the detail in the photo. I notice a curl in the tail. I've never seen that on mallards before. I don't know if it's just this bird or that you showed enough detail so I could see it.

Meant to tell you, there is a review of Homer Hickam's book on my sidebar not just the picture, and it tells about how my sis-in-laws friend went to school with Sonny in W Va. I knew you must not of seen that because of your comment. Hope all is going well for you!
