The Philippine Duck (Anas Luzonica) is a large dabbling duck of the genus Anas. It is endemic to the Philippines. As few as 5,000 may remain. Overhunting and habitat loss has contributed to its decline.

It has a black crown, nape and eye stripe with a cinnamon head and neck. Rest of body is greyish brown with a bright green speculum. Its legs are greyish brown and its bill is blue grey.

It eats shrimp, fish, insects and vegetation and it frequents all types of wetlands.*

Since July 2011 I picked up photography for fun after I bought my camera. I started with a kit lens, followed soon by a better objective. Now whenever I can I’m going out there taking photographs of things that interest me, like animals, landscapes, architecture and lots more.
Recently I picked up selective colouring and b/w, just for fun!

I’ll try to learn from your much appreciated comments and remarks!

All photos (flora and fauna) were taken in Holland (well till now :))!
