Washington Wetlands lived up to its name. (By the way, when did it cease to be Washington Wildfowl Trust? And why do serious places have to sound like adventure theme parks these days?)
It was a grim grey day, though not quite as bad as had been forecast. I went with our local Nature Watch group. Feathers 'n' fur are not my thing, but I treated this as an interesting exercise. I shall upload a job lot all together to avoid prolonging the embarrassment, although I do have one more upload to come. It's feathered but inanimate.
V1 – Fiona (flowerpower59) and I were fascinated by the flamingos. Unlike the rest of what was on offer, they looked really good against muddy water. This one was tricky, it's straight (check the reflections of the flamingos' legs), but the trees above are windblown and stand at an angle, so their reflections don't look
V2 – More reflections, mandarin ducks this time.
V3 - A red-beaked black swan.
V4 – Feeding time for the otters.
V5 – Schoolchildren watching the otters. This is much more my sort of wildlife...
Thanks for looking,
