Hi,
Got this picture today at Sigtuna, Sweden.
Some kids was about to feed a huge bunch of mallards (gräsand in swedish), and they were all around me so i just kept swinging my camera around holding the trigger and was more or less hoping to get a picture.

I kind of liked this one even tho it's not very sharp. Well, to be fair, it not sharp at all: nevertheless, i like it :)

OK I like the shot. :lol: :lol:

If you have PS I would crop him out, put a wite or grass backround, add a party hat and cake. ha ha ha ha ha. and you should be able to sharpen it with flickr.

Erm, in my defense, for those who aren't aware of the excellent photography-themed cartoon series 'what the duck', here:

Maybe there's too many ducks in my recollection, but has anyone seen the movie Babe? Khol's duck also reminds me a little of the character Ferdinand (Ferdy) who realises he needs a new skill base if he's not to be eaten at Christmas!

"Christmas is carnage!" - I love that line!

Hang on, and his head looks a little like the penguin in Wallace and Gromit's The Wrong Trousers!

Right, that's enough reminiscing from me - back to the reviews!
