Pretty Pochard

By SteveMoulding    
A few shots of a very pretty duck, the Red-Crested Pochard. My photo's don't do the colours of the bird full justice, catching them in the right light is not easy. I hope you like them anyway.

Many thanks for all C&C's I have received since I joined, it has encouraged me to go out and improve my skills. Very much appreciated.


PS. Sorry for not commenting or voting yesterday I was tied up all day. I will endeavor to catch up.

Very nice detailed set of shots. Its always difficult to capture how something looks to yourself. But you've done a very good job with these. Nice shots.
