Excellent shot. I like taking photos like this myself.

Well done.

At the risk of offending the more sensitive among you, and with a warning of explicit content..., another side of a Mallard duck's life, and an unexpected rescue from a fate worse than death, may be seen in these pics, taken at Martin Mere yesterday, when visiting with our grandchildren:

Comment by Oscar on 23rd April 2011 at 15:36
Fantastic pic Mick, you know the spring has arrived and summer is only around the corner when you see the ducklings on the water. Also, to Rev. Long, what an interesting series of photos, who'd have thought a coot would do that?


Comment by John on 25th April 2011 at 17:06
