Award Shortlist   

Mrs Quackers and Little'un

By Suehh
Been working on something that just will not go right - mainly because I do not know how to do what I am tyring to achieve - then I thought, hey, if Molls can upload a starling, I can upload a duck - or two.

Captured this little lady peering through the reeds at Staunton Country Park (in my young day it called Leigh Park Gardens but people get posh ideas!) a couple of weeks ago when we had that lovely sunshine - in the evening light

A superb capture, Sue, like how you've caught them framed by the reeds, makes a refreshing change to just a couple of ducks floating about on water Wink

A super capture Sue, really lovely!
In a past life, I lived just up the road from Leigh Park Gardens. Are the Rhododendrons still as lovely?

I hate these folk with posh ideas Sue.You know the ones that give you a glass to pour your can of beer in.Or give you a fork to eat your chips.And they give you that little round plate thing to put your cup of tea on.I hate going into posh restuarants too.They have more cutlery around the soup plate than I have got in my cutlery drawer.And they should get a waiter than can read,instead of him shoving the bottle of wine in front of my face,for me to read the label for him.And I feel like giving him a slap when the miserable sod pours the wine in my glass that is only enough to cover a ten pence piece.I actually did thump one of them.My wife had only just reached her chair,when he grabbed her coat and tried to undress her.I gave him another thump when he called her ''Madam''.She has never worked in a brothel in her life,I can assure you.The manager arrived and calmed me down,but it did not last.I went through the roof when I was presented with that whores doors menu !!

I always have a chuckle at Mick's comments.
This is a charming capture, Sue, with mum on the alert, and the little one as well. I know Staunton well, and in fact my latest upload is from the same place!
