Two males in breeding plumage
A Mandarin and Woodie from the park pond.

And I might as well add a couple of Primula Vulgaris pics

C&C welcome,
Thanks for looking.

Beautiful colors and detail in the duck shots, Martin.
Good job on the primulas, the first sign of Springtime.

Colorful indeed Martin! The flowers sure do make me think Spring!!! Nicely done on those. The ducks are a fine pair of fancy drakes. The woody is my pick for the parallel pose, focus from head to tail. The ducks look a bit washed out maybe?

Fine set Martin

Nice set, Martin.
So THAT'S the Latin for pretty white flowers? Who'da thunk?
And I'm paisley with envy at that pond of yours. Mandarins AND wood ducks?
Now THAT'S a pond.

Common primrose with an uncommon beauty. Both are well done. The color scheme is very similar to Tulipa tarda, another pretty wild, spring flower. The ducks sure are pretty too.

Mandarin is so beautiful, but I really like the hunched down pose you captured of the Wood Duck... nice low perspective too Martin.
Lovely job on the flowers... the first is my favorite.
Well done Martin.

Thanks Tim for the nice comments.
Picture a small fenced pond about the size of a large living room, overhung with trees. packed with ducks galore all with their wings clipped and wishing they could fly, and very little light from a dull sky except a few rays filtering through. Not easy to get a decent shot just yet in the year. But you are right my friend they are a bit washed out and thanks for your straight comments and observations as always. But after making my excuses I always sit back and say, its probably how I took them and pp'ed them and am thinking I probably used a bit too much Shadow removal, except that I always keep it to a minimum........its a work in progress
Cheers,
Martin

I was just checking the spelling of Primula Charlie and got a link to Wikipedia for the Latin name.
Check out my reply to Tim above re the pond. afraid its not a great as it sounds. It has great variety of birds but there is hardly room for them to wag their tails and when they try to flap their wings they spin in all directions as their wings are clipped to stop them flying off. Sad to see them like that but it does offer a few photo ops for birds I would otherwise never see or get near to over here.
Thanks for the nice comments though
