Sunshine flap!

By Lillian  
Male Mallard taking to exercising in the sunshine

Just back from Arundel Wetlands..what a great day..loads of photographers as two Kingfishers

So a quick break from the BWC and a few from Arundel
Hand held and have done nothing with him..just a crop!

Thanks for looking

Lillian

The Mallard is enjoying the bright sunshine. Good detail in the open wings.

I had no need to get into a flap, to decide who to give my UA to. Eric.

The mallard is brilliant Lillian.
With nature image do we retain as it was or straighten or remove distractions?
Don't suppose there is a definitive answer unless for a Wildlife competition?

Wel captured, even if it's 'only' a mallard.
Much better for straightening up.

What a poser Lillian, this is a fabulous image of this mallard drake flapping his wings, the colours are simply glorious and you've caught him in some wonderful warm light. I had a very enjoyable day at Slimbridge with gary_d and the light was perfect and the weather sunny all day. I managed a shot of a cetti's warbler and lots of a heron close up. He came to within a few feet of us and wasn't in the least bit bothered that around a dozen or so photographers were snapping away at him constantly!
