Photographer's Note

Es-tu amoureux ?
Cest ce semble se demander cette canne, devant lattitude de ce mle, au premier plan. Le colvert (Anas platyrhynchos), galement connu en Amrique du nord sous le nom de canard sauvage , est un canard deau, commun et rpandu qui se multiplie dans toutes les rgions tempres et subtropicales de l'Amrique du nord, de l'Europe et de l'Asie. Il frquente galement l'Amrique Centrale et les Carabes, et a t introduit en l'Australie et en Nouvelle Zlande. Il est probablement le plus connu de tous les canards.

Vous pouvez voir ici la nettet parfaite obtenue par le systme de stabilisation VRII du fabuleux Nikkor 18-200, malgr une focale de 170 mmm (255mm eq. film) et une vitesse faible de 1/15s

Are you in love ?
This is what seems to wonder this female mallard, against the attitude of this male, in the foreground. The Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos), also known in North America as the Wild Duck, is a common and widespread dabbling duck which breeds throughout the temperate and sub-tropical areas of North America, Europe and Asia. It also frequents Central America and the Caribbean, and has been introduced into Australia and New Zealand. It is probably the best-known of all ducks.

You can see here the perfect sharpness of the shot with the VRII stabilization device of the fabulous Nikkor 18-200mm, despite the 170mm focal lenght (250mm eq. film) and the low 1/15s speed.
