    hehehe indeed.

    I wanted to get the river in the shot, since it was a lovely shade of blue today (not the usual greeny brown - this I put down to the lack of clouds).
    In the background are the Kangaroo Point Cliffs, where, if you're game, you can abseil or rock climb.

    I've never been able to get close to any animals with my camera. I'm too impatient. I'm more the person who runs at them and takes a quick snap as they are fleeing the scene. I have many pictures of animal butts!

    Well to be fair Helen I was probably only a titch over 2 feet away... it'd be a sad thing if I couldn't shoot a duck from that close ;-)

    hehehee Mark, I got the most amusing mental image of you charging at a deer, arms flailing, flash going off as it bounds terrified into the woods...

    That's a great shot David, it must have been a tame duck for you to get that close!

    Thanks Jeffrey, that part is one of my favourite things about these ducks too :) In different light it can appear green, blue, or purple.
