    Thanks, 1986, and Chiller, I appreciate your comments.
    Anyone know the first mallard has a neon bluish glow on his tail? I have more shots like this too.

    Cool.....Black with a red beak?....its as if a normal swan has gone to a spray shop and said "make me look like the A Team van!". Great shots bill.

    Your Photo 2 of this black swan is really, really lovely.

    I've seen them before - in zoos or on lakes, and in Australia.

    I also really, really, really like the last duck pic.
    The male mallards may be shinier in colour (which they are, as you so nicely show us again with your pics here!), but you gave the "pale" female the coolest pic. Nice of you!!! :D
