~ Flap ~

By starstriders
I think this little duck had a case of OCD as it could not stop washing and preening itself! Gave me more than enough opportunity to capture this shot.

If anyone can ID it for me that would be great.

All comments, criticism and modifications received with interest. Cheers.

Superb Lauren,

The head and body are pin sharp, and I love the colour and textures you have captured in the water. The London wetland center is great isn't it?

Thanks Matt; yes it's a very impressive setup considering it's so close to the city. Easy to get to aswell on the dreaded public transport Wink

Yes it is, I work in Hammersmith, so close by. The place can be buzzing with dragonflies in late summer.
