Autumn Colours

By striker1998  
Mandarin Duck, Taken at Wingham Wild Life Park near Sandwhich in Kent. It was an impromptu visit as we had a photographic day booked which got canceled due to the bad weather we had on the saturday just gone. Seeing as I'd hired a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens from Lensfettish for the weekend to try, we went down to Wingham for a couple of hours & this was one of my favourite shots.

Well I've said thank you to all who have placed a comment on my picture but I really shouldn't forget all who have taken the time out to look at it & also those of you who have placed a vote. This does mean a lot as the feed back & views of those people who take a couple of minutes out of there day help us move forward in our aim to become better photographer's. Smile

I've not photographed one of theses myself, lovely detail and the autumnal colour in the background sets it off nicely. Steve. Wink
