A post is two parts tonight, the first section comprising a couple of shots taken early this morning as the sun was competing with the mists over the South Downs.
At ground level things weren’t so bad… two moorhens racing across the pond (and dodging gulls) as the light filtered through.
The remainder of the post is a short sequence of that most ungainly of the local water birds, the male Muscovy duck. Looking at him, it’s hard to believe he could possibly fly.
But he can, and here’s the proof.
Camera note: all photos taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens.
