Default my favorite birds from this week...

ive put together a series of my favourite duck or swan shots from yesterdays trip to Kersney Abbey in Dover. out of almost 800 shots i chose 5 lol. (yes i have been busy) thats not to say that i only had 5 worth showing, i just dont want to bore you more than necesary swans are so hard to photograph well. a few of you here are what i call the experts at birds, i aim to join you some day but for now i offer these.

i hope you enjoy the series

regards,
john

in preview i noticed that the last shot is done no justice at this size. i have it currently set as my background screen on a 24 inch monitor. it looks much better

Very nice. I like #2. I always have a soft spot for those guys for some reason.

Thank you NileLily, there as many different types of water bird there. These are just a few. Im glad you liked them

Thanks Steve, not quite sure what type of duck that is but my son called it Kane. I think he watches too much wwe lol
Mating season and there will be plenty of young there soon. Hope to capture some ducklings. And maybe even a swan carrying its young. That would be a good shot to get.

Thank for the comments
regards,
John
