Two years ago I befriended a Mallard Drake and I named him George. Really, no joke, no exaggeration, George was my buddy. George and his flock would swim by my office and I could open my window, call his name and he would fly to the shore and walk up to my window. I would feed him some duck food, and some cornflakes...
George was a large mallard and he was recognizable amongst his flockmates. George had a mate, so I had to wrack my brain for a name for her. Famous Georges and their spouses came to mind... I could have named her Martha, but I opted for Ouise :)
PROCESS: This image is a cropped photo. I got close to her, at eye level and shot this image near my office deliberately overexposing the shot and using a shallow depth of field. The background is SNOW. The only processing was unsharp mass and also a levels and curve adjustment for contrast.
