thanks, these are straight from the camera except for the crop, it was afternoon fadinglight and they were a fair way off so had to use full 300mm on the lens. I would have loved to have got closer, the mother is a really beautiful looking duck.

I would have thought 8 was enough for her to deal with without anymore.:-)

Nice, colorful, landscaped wildlife type pictures here Julie. Great work. And the Mama duck sure is a better looking bird than the Muscovy duck isn't she. :-)

Nice, Julie! Seeing these images makes me wish that I could live in Australia for your summers and in the US for our summers. I must be getting old because I'm getting weary of having to cope with winters... :O

summer not here yet Geoffs, it's spring here and the day I took this shot there had been a very short break in the rain, it had rained non-stop all day and the heating was on. I dont mind the cold (I doubt it gets as cold here as where you are) but I hate the rain.
