Very nice shot of Mergus serrator (polish name: Szlachar ;-) ).
Much nicer than my Turdus pilaris. But I am just starting.

Thanks guys. Got another shot of this bird showing it's teeth (it's a 'sawbill' duck).
Had the tripod legs wide out & down at it's lowest level (about 10 inches) to make things steadier...also makes for a better photo in terms of angle, see too many water birds taken from above and it doesn't really look right imho.
Best regards,
Andy B
