Bird photos

London is keeping me quite busy, but I figured I'd post a few photos this morning before I run off again. I'm working on a group project on Kensington Gardens, so when I visited the park a couple days ago I had a little fun with bird photography.

Most of the birds I found were near the Peter Pan statue by the Serpentine Lake, including this male Mallard.

While I was taking pictures of the ducks, this Gray Heron flew over posed for some nice pictures.

The head-on view is my favorite. ;-) Beautiful pattern on the underside of the neck!

Further along the lake I found a few Red-crested Pochards.

There was also a pair of Mute Swans near the Pochards.

That's about all I have for now, so enjoy the photos! Spring break starts next week and I'm heading out for a short backpacking trip around England and Wales. After that, I have 3 more weeks and then it's back to the states where I'll try to get back to blogging more regularly over the summer. This has been a rollercoaster last few months!
