"The sun argues 
ice to liquid"

from Icicles
by Mark Irwin

We took the dogs to the park today, the city has not yet filled 
 the pond. They wait till late spring to discourage the Canadian 
Geese from nesting. However this pair of Mallards were making 
do with the spring melt water in a low spot. Although they are 
probably our most common duck I love the iridescent heads on 
the males and all the colours you see when they preen.

"I am living deeply now
like the white spider I spy
among the wild roses."

What kind of lens do you have to get such nice close-ups?
