Not the qulaity of the duck mind you but of the images obtained. Poor light, backlighting, over reflective water, whatever conspired a less than successful attempt at the Lesser Scaup. It's nice when they do something or appear alongside a comparision species but painfull when the result isn't sharp.Oh well, apparently Foghorn sends his birds to sleep. I remember that problem but not with ducks! Couldn't resist a shot at the Mandarin which kept under the canopy of a tree and avoided standard Oriental poses in favour of flapping about.
Preenings always a good one to stop any photogenius.
Meanwhile back at the Lesser Scaup TRD's dog just looked on in bemusement.
