This guy ws snoozing on the bank of Howden Reservoir; perhaps it was the click of the camera that disturbed him but he did not look too pleased at my presence.

He did stay for a while and then, giving me a dirtly look, he shuffled further down the bank, out of sight of my lens.

Can anyone explain why when a ducks eyes are closed the lids are or appear to be white, as illustrated in V2

Thank you so much for your comments and votes on Dam Busters; I do have a couple more to share with you.

Two lovely images, Tish!
I'm afraid I can't explain the white eye phenomenon!

Thank you so much for the information; can I assume this is something to do with protecting the eye when hunting for food?

Thank you for taking the time to vote and provide this valuable information.

I have seen your weather forecast and as a result I am sharpening my knife Grin............. so depressing Tongue

Actually number of eyelids is not useless information [unlike the weather forecast]; I find it quiet fascinating; although couldn't be doing with 5 eyelids myself, too complicated when it comes to applying makep, which colour on which lid, or should I do them all the same colour, but maybe that would look too heavy GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin decisions decisions.

Thankyou so much for your kind vote and comments.

Just a little soft. Loaded mod. Mainly contrast and sharpening, and added a bit to the top. Settings look decent. 1/500 was the minimum for hand holding, - so a little faster can help; and stop down the aperture from the max open. It again means higher ISO. 1/600 at f/8 would be covered by ISO 1000. I like that bokeh water drop effect in the grass.
