This morning I went for a hike through Cootes Bay. It was a nice morning and lots of creatures were out and about. This Mallard duck was cleaning himself on the branch sticking out of the water. When I am out in the field and in my element I always look for compositions that follow some of the “rules” in photography. This is one such image. It follows the Rule of Thirds and also has leading lines. Plus it has a pleasing background.
