I went for a walk this morning with my camera + macro lens. Right up until the very end of the walk I was kicking myself for not bringing the telephoto instead because it was already too hot for butterflies and damselfies to be sitting still, and then I came across this mallard duck shading her baby from the sun. Aw.

There are so many cute balls of fluff bibbling around by the canal right now. Ducks, geese, moorhen chicks, and up by the reservoir there are grebes!

Sleepy baby duck. It went right back to sleep after I started taking photos. It was definitely relying on its vigilant mother to keep a lookout!
