  4. Lovely photos Stella. I love the tease of metallic, it adds a nice splash of colour to their otherwise dark feathers.

    1. I never even used to notice birds much, find a bird fancier and go on a few walks with them. It's amazing how many there are.

    1. I had to crop that second shot quite heavily so we could get a better look at how lovely they were. It's my fav too.

    1. Ducks evoke a bit of child in all of us I think. Perhaps because for manny of us they are often the first bird we ever get to interact with. They always bring me a little bit of childlike glee too =D I hope you get to see some soon.
