May! Finally!

Yesterday I got some really bad shots of a common shelduck (Tadorna tadorna) and the red-breasted merganser (Mergus serrator) - the light was terrible and the birds were at a long distance. However, today it was a wonderful sunny day, and I was up early, so I headed off to see whether the birds were in the same place. I still couldn't do anything about the distances as they still kept away, but the light was so much better!

First - the Common shelduck (male behind, female in front):

After the trip to the sea, I took my dog for a long walk in the woods, in an area that passes a lot of small lakes. The toads are not too shy about their love life ;-)

 

Or maybe they are? ;-)

Thank you for watching.
