Young Mandarin Drake

By SteveMoulding    
Another one of those weeks where time just diappears, sorry for the lack of comments. I'm just working harder than ever to keep my job, the redundancies have been posponed for another two weeks. As you can imagine the stress levels are climbing, anyway enough waffle and offloading of my troubles.
Thanks for the kind comments and good wishes they are very much appreciated.
Back to photography. A quick upload today of this young Mandarin Drake still not in his full plumage. I love these beautiful ducks and taking their pictures. I hope you like him. Thanks for all your C&C's on my Kestrel, I still haven't mastered inflight shots yet but will keep practicing. Any advice would be gratefully received.
Have a great week.

A splended shot Steve. This is really well done and what a super subject you have chosen. I can only dream about shots like this. Hope things go well at your job. I know what stress can do to you. Keeping busy always helps but sometimes we have to push ourselves. Keep up the wonderful work.

He's so handsome! Their colours are wonderful and you've captured them so well. The stress of awaiting the outcome re jobs must be dreadful. Fingers and toes are crossed!
