V2 with a squarish crop would be great on it's own.

All that agro and she isn't even paying any attention! A great set. I think V1 is my favourite as I lke peace a lot better though V2 is so very well timed. My guess is it's a bit like those folk we see on TV, setting up their pitch to be first in at Harrod's Sales! Book your spot well ahead of everyone else! Grin

I think the one on the 'nest' is a male as it seems much more attractive than the others. No idea what kind of duck it is though. Well captured action. Moira

These whitefaced whistling ducks are such characters, I'm always amused by their antics whenever I visit the WWT at slimbridge
