Shoveler - Anas clypeata

Photographed at Slimbridge WWT (wild), Gloucestershire, UK
Not a very good one, it is the light.

Please can you sign this petition to stop the proposed M4 over the Gwent Levels. I feel strongly about this because it is a place I visit a lot. The damage to the Gwent Levels along with Magor Marsh and the Newport Wetlands will be irreparable!


Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.uk. There is a photo of a Common Sandpiper,  and  the Jackdaw by Callum in the 'Guest photographer'

  19. Bom dia, a Canon 7D e a objectiva 500 é excelente, pena não poder usar o duplicador, as fotos conseguidas são perfeitas, os detalhes tem boa definição e a qualidade é soberba.
