Sir Peter checking my equipment!

Yo Peepsters  Despite the overcast weather I drove to the Wetlands for a morning of smudge.  Because of the low visibility I took the large glass Wedgwood Benn’s. Here’s a picture of Sir Peter Scott checking my lens for suitability

Having been given the green light I sallied fifth and stopped by the wigeon pool.  I enclose a Barnaby of the wigeon drake who looked very handsome in his winter plumage.

Carrying on regardless, I managed smudges of a red-crested pochard drake (a doppelgänger for David Bowie), a hooded merganser duck  and a  ferruginous drake.

I know I’ve posted an American wood drake before, but couldn’t resist leaving another portrait, he looked so gorgeous!

Yo doods     The weather wasn’t too Clever Trevor this morning so I decided to drive to the Wetlands, therefore taking the larger Anthony Wedgwood’s. I was pleased with my smudges and hope you enjoy them too. I particularly liked the Puna Teal which I hope you double click on.  The black-bellied whistling duck gave me a nice stretch of its wing which was fortunately the un-clipped one.  I was also pleased to get a Barnaby of the very rare Laysan Teal which if wasn’t for Sir Peter Scott would now be extinct!
