    An issue which can't be ducked. Its eider one thing or the other

    Saw this pair by a pond in a park whilst up at another town shopping ( me, that is, not the ducks! And as they seemed pretty used to people around them I paused for a few shots. It was around lunch time and I was getting a bit hungry. Being away from home, Take Away fare was on the menu for me. Anyway, the ducks were slowly waddling around, so I tried to get them to move a little faster that I might get some 'action' shots; and then nick off for some lunch. It was a case of "Ken ducky tried quicken." (With apologies for that one! )
    Cheers
    Ken

    Steve, What are you quacking about? Do you mean 'Bad' as in 'wicked, good' as the teens say?

    Nice shots Ken. Are these as the title suggests Eider ducks? I like the first and the last one. They make such a nice couple and in the first I wonder what they are communicating to each other.

    Wonderful. Needed a good laugh.

    The ducks in the first one are nicely uncluttered by background 'stuff' (grasses, stonework). A good one.

    Ken, I saw this, last night, after the umpteenth time trying to download photos into LR (I've pushed some nonsensical button, apparently). Point is, I like the photos but - I needed the laugh - er, badly! Then, I was speechless - couldn't think of how to respond and, here I am, making a hash of it but, thank you!

    Hi Donald
    Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my post. Glad you had a laugh. Someone when they saw the photo asked how I found these ducks. I was tempted to say, "delicious!" However I thought I had better not. Can't be too careful about these things. Vegans can turn quite nasty when provoked, even if you are only taking the mickey!

    Hi Katy N
    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on ' me ducks.'.
    I share your misery Ma'am. I am currently ploughing through the Lightbook Manual which I downloaded. It is very tedious and very hard going. Not the easiest of reads and hardly a Mills and Boon Bodice ripping saga!
    And I am truly shattered by your comment. What have I done? What is wrong with me? I left you speechless????? This is the sort of thing Glenise says this to me sometimes. When she is confronted by the outcome of my latest round of mayhem and disaster.... " Sometimes you leave me speechless!" is about the gist of it! First her... now you... where have i gone wrong? ( please insert an icon of teared stained face with stereophonic sobbing in the background...... Okay, so, putting that aside, since she is not home until tomorrow, what I plan to have a go at today is to...
