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:

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?
