Mr and Mrs

By moiral
Morning all, still blooming well wet and windy Sad. This is the last of the duck shots, reckon you will have had enough Wink. V1 has Mrs Mallard deciding whether she should come across and see if there is any more grubb. V2 is Mr Mallard guzzling some bread along with the little duck just half out of the frame on the left. I know I should have cloned out the breast of the one on the right, but just do not seem to get the hang of cloning. Can do little bits but not a big area without making a right mess. Sorry!

Nice, sharp shots Moira, I wouldn't worry about cloning it out, I find that generally if its in the shot its part of the scene so leave it alone.

I love your duck pictures, think I've missed a couple, apologies for that, am having "Carer" problems again for my Mother and the time goes go fast.

Now what you mean about cloning, I'm the same, but I like to see a bit of the surroundings. Am looking forward to Venice with Lillian, expect we will have a laugh..
