Award Shortlist   


Another shot of my riverside mandarin; I just think his colours are so striking. Thanks to everyone for c/c on Fly Away Peter, really do appreciate the help and advice. Attempting to upload a V2 showing this little fella in agressive mood to make sure he gets his share of the food on offer. Hope it appears! Little late today but it's been a busy one. Going to relax when I get through the next few minutes. J.

Can never quite believe any Duck looks like this, but aren't they just so amazing and beautiful? Two very nicely captured images.

Lovely detail and colour. Shame you missed the tip of the beak in V2 but you captured the mood beautifully.

Lovely colour and detail Joan well done. Perhaps a side on shot may have shown them off to better detail and a shame about that little bit of beak missing on V2 but ya gotta work with what you have don't you.
