Good morning everyone, I hope that you are safe, warm and dry after the recent horrendous weather.

No jiggery-pokery today with textured filters

This is a perfectly straight image taken a couple of days ago during a visit to WWT Slimbridge, we had a visit without rain. However it was torrential during the journey there, quite unbelievable.

A cracking shot of this handsome mallard drake, such glorious colours and pin sharp details in the plumage
