[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Went to the local park today to see what was about. Unfortunately my batteries ran out not long after i got there. So i had to use my Dad's Digital SLR camera which i had never used before. I am quite pleased with my first attempt of using his camera. This is a picture of a female Mallard.
It is a very widespread Duck in England, she has a mottled plumage, They can be found on a variety of wetlands and urban ponds and can be quite tame.
