If It Looks Like A Duck...

... it probably is a duck, even if it doesn't quack. Unless it's a cormorant.

Here are a few of the more interesting shots of ducks (and cormorant) from my trip to RSPB Ham Wall a week ago. There were also plenty of the 'here's a swimming widgeon' type of photo, but who wants to see yet another standard duck picture - unless you're into that sort of thing of course.

All with K3 + DA300mm + F 1.7x adapter.

1. Making waves

2. Who needs a head?

3. At last, one posed for the camera...

4. Alone in the big, bad, cold world

5. Keeping the ice hole open

6. Lord of all he (or she) surveys

These work very well as a set for me. If I had to pick a favourite it'd be Nr. 3, it'd bad enough getting humans to look the right way and this captures the wild spirit nicely.

Why do I have a vision of you with waders on, camera in hand and a duck call whistle in your mouth

I'm liking the 3rd the most, it has a nice painterly feel to it for me
