I was undecided on the title. I had thought,
'One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Duckling' but decided it was too long. Then I thought of 'Left Behind' but as he did eventually pluck up the courage to take the plunge and follow mummy he wasn't really left behind. Anyway, that aside I thought he was really cute calling for his mummy and the look of shock horror as she swam away.
Many thanks for all the comments and votes on my last upload the Lilac Breasted Roller and all my other photos.
If anyboby's interested I intend to go to the BWC (British Wildlife Centre) tomorrow, Thursday and would love to meet anyone.
Steve.
