Hello all,

Went on a little nature ramble yesterday and here are some pics:

All taken with the D300 and the Nikkor 18-200mm. Converted from Raw & levels adjustments in Capture NX. Sharpened in PS CS3.

Got some landscapy ones too that I'll post later in the Natural Landscapes forum.

Sorry Patti, no Peking ducks, just chicken & chicks :)

Really nice shots C.Mark

I particularly like 4 and 6 both of which I think are stunning as would be #2 had it had a similar background to #6 (not your fault obviously - just too much light coloured plant stems causing a bit of distraction IMHO).

Great job! :)

Nice shots!

Do peking ducks refer to a specific kind of duck or just the "finished product".? :wink: I think patti might be a bit disappointed to see the later.

Thanks for your comments guys, very much appreciated!

Graham, I think you know the answer to that :) I guess you could call ducks that live there, Peking ducks, but I must admit I only know them served up with pancakes, cucumber & soy sauce....oops...sorry Patti!! :P
