That is a hybrid duck, very beautiful to say the least Trevor.
Lately I've had a love affair with pictures of birds. So I've found a lot of blogs with these. I think yours might be my favourite.You are brilliant. It's like you are a fly on the wall - or in the sky - with a camera. And the birds don't seem to mind a bit. I love how you capture shadows and ripples too.
oh, i've so missed dropping by to visit the magnificent little critters of yours here, trevor! truly beautiful images - just incredible - thanks so much for sharing!
Thank you for sharing your amazing bird shots! Ducks are such angels in the water.....
