It was very windy and very few birds about.
A female Mallard posed beautifully, on top of one of the rails of the small bridges. Their feather colouring and marking really is amazing!
After a while, the drake flew in to join her
I can advise that he didn't push her off the rail :D
At this time of the year, there's usually more in the insect world to photograph than birds. And it's a really enjoyable time of the year too. More to come over the next couple of months!
Green veined White Butterfly
This one (of many) was enjoying collecting pollen.
Lovely to feel the warmth of the sun again; it was rather too windy for many decent insect shots especially when using the Macro lens.
And thanks to Gary and Andy for their company :D
