Got these handsome Mallards boys last week – all decked out in their breeding plumage. The pairing-up with the girls was negotiated over the winter months and, with spring approaching, breeding and little families are next up! That’s ice in the background as these guys were just low in their take-off when I shot this.

I’ve not been around much lately as a member of my family is very unwell; however, I’m doing my best to check in with all of you here who have sent kind messages wondering where I am. Thanks for that, so nice!

    Oh, Katherine!!! This is SPLENDID!! The position of the wings and your crop is perfection and the flat toned background sets them off and it looks like a painting. Truly an outstanding image…. I hope you will be entering it in a camera club competition – it’s a Winner!!! ♥♥♥

  • Thank you, Kim. These two were so close to me that I had to back up to get them both in the frame. Your words are very kind and generous and I thank you so much.
