I had to upsize this Mallard Duck as it needed a tight crop. Shame I couldn't crop it tighter. I love the splashes it's making - Yes they're water droplets, not flies.  :D

Brown and black 4-legged animals. I can't think what they're called, but they kept saying "moo" to me.

Lonely woman in a trendy hat on La Jolla Shores beach looking towards Scripps Pier

I really like this photo. Technically it is not great; mid-day and just too much bright light.  Sky has fairly "dirty" color thanks to all the haze/smog coming off LA.  But I like the composition & this is why I uploaded it.  There were few other people on the beach but I cut them out;  I was messing with the sky for quite a bit in PS but eventually left it as is.

Philippe - I cancelled the red arrow from your "watching TV" pic (I like the pic too!). I did something a bit similar.....well sort of.....a few months ago. Actually I'm not sure if I love it or hate it. It's one of my few where I try to think out the box. Honest opinions please?

Some black and white goodness of Arundel Castle (I can't get away from Arundel, and I was there again today, and can't wait to post the results on Alamy! I took 767 photos in 2 hours. Thank goodness for digital!  :)

I noticed I posted a lazy cow photo twice, so sorry about that, I've removed the 2nd one now. I don't think I've posted this one before.
