Nice shot Les. I like the "leather" frame too

I love this picture and the way the bird appears to be wearing a bonnet

Now, what's this beauty doing at Martin Mere?

I remember going there, years ago, we heard one lady say to another,
"Look dear, there are some ducks."
... well, it made us smile at the time! wink
Les Auld: Still plenty of ducks Ellie, and thousands of swans and geese at this time of year. Thanks for the comment.
what a show off! beautiful!
Les Auld: He did pose a bit, thanks for the comment.
