Floating in

By KingArthur
I managed to fit in some photography last Saturday afternoon visiting my favourite birding haunt. Thick cloud cover ruled most of the afternoon with sparse drizzles to add some flavour.

On one brief thinning of the weather, I spotted this solitary duck on the opposite bank and tried "quacking" it towards me .... sometimes these little tricks do work out in the field. Sure enough, it did veer its course and headed in my direction ..... I allowed it to approach and managed to bag this frame capturing its inquisitive look as it alighted. Quite pleased with the end result, larger should look better.

Have a good safe week,
Joe Smile
