Weight and Stuff Report – 15 April 2012

Ho hum, back up a bit today, but never mind.

I eventually persuaded myself to pay a visit to the Saltwell Park Show this afternoon. Now either all the interesting bits had already given up by a little after 2pm, or the whole thing really was a bit dull this year, I’m not sure.

There were a few of these banners flying.

As the activities weren’t very interesting, I turned my attention to the ducks:

I’ve caught some nice detail on this female mallard, though her tail seems a bit soft. This male was either too busy eating or too shy to pose properly, but I still got some nice detail.
