Mr. & Mrs.

Coombe Abbey Hotel, Coventry
This is my first attempt at duck 'portraits'.  There were 4 and seconds later there were none.  Considering I was about 8 feet away, I will settle for this....next time I will show you the full tail...maybe!

Nice portrait! Ducks make good subjects for several reasons.. 1 most people like ducks. 2 Ducks are pretty comfortable with people being close. 3 Unlike say a robin they are large enough to get a decent shot from a little way off.

Keep practicing - it's worth the effort! :D

Any birds are great fun to capture.

It came out beautifully! I love the look of these two, you got a great 'portrait' shot from 8 feet away - I like the soft background too:)

I am liking the challenge to photographing moving objects. Thanks for the advice from the two Pauls.

Always lovely to see what Tanya, Lulu and the one and only Chieftess have to say. Thanks. (PS. Kathryn...how do you like to be addressed?)

These two are awesome!! They appear to be very willing subjects, for your capable camera.
