Those are some great candid shots Scott, love #1 with the duck standing on the tippy toes of his webbed feet, trying to stay as far away as possible!

It's amazing in how long their necks really are because you usually never see them stretched out like that!

Agree- don't often see the neck outstretched like that. The goose is a 'greylag'  and the swan,  a mute swan. Nice photos.
