Feathered Friends - Show Me A Photo (#SMaP) Contest Round 134

We had a visit to Straw's Bridge Nature Reserve. The birds on the lake didn't seem to mind all the visitors coming and going in the car park. The mallard duck was spreading its wings showing its lovely blue/purple feathers. This is my entry to Show Me a Photo of Bird/s - Wings.

Here is a closer look at the coloured flash on their wings. I think the humble mallard is quite underestimated. Their feathers are really pretty close up.

The black headed gull is quite common in the UK. In the summer, it has a brown head that turns white for the rest of the year, but it has little black spots on either side of their heads.

This Canada Goose was just getting out of the lake to sit on the side with the mallard duck. Food was about!

The coot wasn't very happy as another bird was getting too close, so it raised its feathers and chased it off. They're smallish birds but very aggressive at times.

Thank you to @nelinoeva and the rest of the #featheredfriend's team for running the contest.

The mallard duck really has beautiful plumage. Black headed gull got me confused the first time I saw it in winter when the head was white. 🙂
Thank you again for your lovely entry!

Nice time by the lake. So many birds there, the food must be plentiful.

It’s all because they have beautiful feathers!

Have you tried Waves on Ecency App yet? It’s like twitter but much easier to use for micro blogging. You could post only one photo at a time. Look at the waves symbol at the bottom of Ecency.

Yes. This App had so many problems; crashing very often. I kept telling them about my problems. They made too many improvements so there are too many bugs! 😂😂
I prefer the old way which has proven to work smoothly. People shouldn’t change something good for the sake of modernity and improvement.
But it’s working much better than before; still crashing from time to time. At least you won’t lose what you have typed like in the past. I used to lose the whole pages often!

The Waves micro blogging is still very young. It needs more basic functions to seriously thrive in the long run. But it’s easier to navigate than X.

Oh you had a lot of patience if you had to re-type all of the pages again. I do like my apps but it's frustrating when they don't work.
