Quick DUCK Frank!

I know it's not a duck..
Frank L Croston.: Ha, ha...It would have been a big duck, Chris.
I think its a seal that has grown wings Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It does look like that, Andrew.
You must be wearing a red hat!

Great capture Frank - did your lens survive the attack?
Frank L Croston.: It did, Anne...smileThanks.
I reckon you have photoshopped out the stick this is attached to Frank
Frank L Croston.: Wot! Me ?
A very clever Duck if it isn't attached to anything.
Frank L Croston.: Oh, it was attached, Brian.
it took that 1/2500s shutter speed to freeze the humming birds wings in this shot Frank...

i can't say that i have ever seen one of these birds without their wings in motion....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: I think you missed my 'all is not what it seems' comment,
you got me good Frank... and i still haven't seen a humming bird without their wings in motion!!
Frank L Croston.: I'm sorry Peter, I should have made it clearer...I've sent you a photo to make up, its the best I've managed. smile
