Bird spotting

Duck

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
