Something to get you smiling.
This ickle mallard was one of about eight who live in the Whipsnade bird garden pond.
I got a few cute shots, and here's one of them.
When I arrived, they were very wary, and stayed close to mummy mallard for some time. They eventually began to get a bit more confidence, and started exploring the edge of the pond.

I decided to post the first of these cute shots, as I'm sure like me, you're missing the fluffies. So this one is for you Elize. Not long to go until your camera is back with you.

Thanks for looking

Really sharp capture Alan, good light and composition. The big zoom at 500mm comes in handy for these shots. Very nice work.

Oh Alan, this is a cutie. Look at her digging for shellfish(!!) The world will be such fun to explore at this stage of their lives. Great job, well done.

Very cute and fluffy! Most of the fluffies round here are half fledged now.

Adorable duckling in a funny position, Alan. Comical and fitting title. Beautiful baby duck that you have captured with sharp details and perfect exposure. I like the soft down on his little body. Excellent composition as well. Well done and TFS. : )

Wonderfully cute Alan. Good catchlight. POV is spot on. Tack sharp details. Nice work. Thanks
