This is real majesty. Not the sort involving that nice but offensively privileged old lady whose birthday it is today.
This gorgeous lad/ lass had just taken off from the Stroudwater Navigation (canal) at Ryeford. I know I've not captured all if it sadly, but of the few I managed to reel off, this is the one with the best detail of the wings and the best background.
At the same locale I took a load of pictures of a mum Mallard and her eight unbelievably cute babies and yet again they came out rubbish. I'lltry it a third time and then I'm giving up on ducklings!
Only a quickie as I'm off out to see chums this eve. Got some chores to do first. No-one else will do them. :(
