Serene Duck

I’m in Bournemouth at the moment, visiting my sister. The other day we went for walk to a local pond which has lots of ducks, and as it turned out a lot of gulls too. Anyway, I took a lot of photos, as usual, and this one stands out to me. This duck was fearless and was hanging around our feet on the side of the pond, hoping we had some food. I was able to get down to eye level and get this shot of her looking at me calmly. I like how clear and focused her eye is – I had several other similar shots and her eye was fuzzy when you looked in close, but this was by far the best 🙂 [You can click on her to see a bigger version]
