Bird spotting

I went bird spotting at the Botanical Gardens today.  It helps me to get to  get to know my new camera...and I love birds too.

I used the long lens today.

It was a glorious day.   There were many families at the Gardens.

The little duck in this picture was drying his wing, standing on one foot.  I think I was very lucky to get this shot.  cx


  1. Great shot! I love ducks

  2. Thanks Julia. Ducks are beautiful. This is a Pacific Black Duck. I don't know how it got it's name when it is mainly a motley brown!!cx
