Whilst I was up at WWT Martin Mere at the weekend, concentrating on flight photos..... more to follow in the next post..... I was struck with how beautiful the Mallard is.
This is a duck that is more often than not completely ignored as we pursue more rarer or exciting species, but when you take some time to look at them more closely they are beautifully marked ducks, and especially when the sun shines on them. Below are a few snaps taken at Martin Mere, see what you think, your opinion may change as mine has!!
