Green


I was at James Gardens on a very sunny cool day and the angle of the winter sun was really reflecting nicely off the heads of the male Mallards so of course I shot a whole load of pics to try to get some great green showing. But of course they don't stay still for long so I had a lot of duds. I like this one and also I like seeing his little foot below the water.

It is exactly as it is. Wonderful.

I know that feeling when the ducks do not want to stay still for just one picture.

Pretty capture of the Mallard, he has a beautiful shiny green head.
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, have a happy weekend.

Their heads are an absolutely wonderful colour and you've captured the tone and iridescence perfectly.

A Mandarin Duck came flying in to Stockholm earier in the week. Not something that happens very often, so the bird watchers, soon gathered nearby.

Such a common and yet fabulous duck. :-)

The green is remarkable. In a world full of feathered creatures it stands out as silky with a brilliant sheen.

I used to see mallards all the time in New England, and I know they are also found in Florida, but I rarely see the males here.
