Red-crested Pochard........................................................................... Martin Mere

I captured this image a few years ago at the Wildlife and Wetlands Trust reserve at Martin Mere.

Red-crested Pochard (Netta rufina).

My son Craig lives quite near to the reserve so I have no excuses for not visiting more often... 
...and I also get to meet up with the little fella below.

My grandson Arthur is now two and a half years old.
He loves the outdoors...  and it's about time I got him interested in wildlife.

Arthur has grown up so fast, he is truly precious and looks so full of joy.. maybe a small cheap camera for him to take photos.. the Pochard is gorgeous.

Never thought much about ducks till now and I am not an easy nut to crack but this is really something I have seen millions of duck photos and I've seen Donald, and Daffy duck along with so many other ducks lol. If I were you and had any kind of sense I would make this into a poster of sorts because this will sell!.. Even I would love to use it for wallpaper for my computer it really is a great photo Miss Lady!
