    While riding on a bike in a park I rode across the pond and I saw duck.. yes.. duck again... but I tried something new.. I wish the ducks were a bit sharper :(

    oh btw. this one was taken with this crappy Sigma 70-210 about which i wrote in Discussions (Digital Section)

    and then I decided to shot something still:

    The first one is a duck, the bird chasing the duck is known as a Coot, they are very teritorial and from what I've observed they like nothing more than chasing ducks :D

    They are sooo much fun to watch and have such weird feet :lol: Just back back off my hols on a river boat, we were throwing food to the coots whilst going down the river, taking photos of them running like loons on the water, I hope they came out :)

    I love the shot you've taken by the way, coots are my favourite bird of the moment :) From the front they remind me of the Friday 13th and Jason films :lol:

    The effect achieved in the first one is great. I really like that one! The background looks like pencil strokes! Very interesting!

    So you can ride across a pond by bike?
    Who are you!!!!! :shock:

    :biggrin:

    I really love the first one.!!!!!!!!!
    It reminds me of The Impressionist paintings (which I also love)
    I'm glad you posted it and didn't delete it!!!!!
