SORRY FOLKS BUT FROM MY IMAGE POST YOU CAN SEE THAT THE BIRDS HAVE MIGRATED THROUGH AND FOR NOW THE ONLY SUBJECTS THAT ARE LEFT ARE THE DUCKS, BECAUSE WE STILL HAVE OPEN WATER FOR THEM TO STAY ON, THIS ONE WAS COMING TO MY CLICKING SOUND OF THE CAMERA GOING OFF AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE DUCK'S AROUND.

Must admit Peter, that it is an odd looking Warbler, but hey, ho, disguised as a Duck, its a cracking image. Please excuse my daft humor. This is just lovely, the bg and that look in its eyes are first rate.
Make your life spectacular!

You don't need to apologise for ducks, Peter! - I love them! Although I think from this angle he looks more like an Alien! Lovely shot and unique perspective to catch that crazy look!

Certainly a very unique perspective photographed here, Peter - quite an enjoyable image.

One of my favorite waterbirds as well. So far I did not have any coming close.
I really like this rare head on shot and the water looks great too.

Love the low angle, the golden water, and of course the “pose”.
Good light,
Craig

The shape of the head plumage and low angle make this one for me, Peter.
