I entered this photo in a competition at The Chertsey Fair under the class ‘British Birds’ Even though these ducks originate from Asia (closely related to the Wood Duck found in America) a large feral population was established in the 20th century due to specimens escaping from collections, and there are now 7,000 in Britain. I photographed this pair on the Thames in Walton.
We went to the show today & found this lovely certificate beside my photo! First Prize!!
I also entered photos into the ‘My Favourite Smile’ class;
and ‘Portrait’ class;
We came third
Does this make me a professional photographer?
