Thanks to a loan camera and zoom lens from Olympus, this was the week I discovered I might enjoy a bit of wildlife photography. I was thrashing around for suitable subjects to illustrate a review of the outfit when the London Wetland Centre sprang to mind. Where better to take a 300mm-equivalent zoom lens and go in search of some very civilised wildlife?
Of course I know nothing about birds and ducks and stuff, and I even accused this family duo of being Eider ducks. I’ve been put on the right track — they are likely to be moorhens given the size of their feet. The baby’s feet are almost as large as the parent’s.
