The month of May is exhausting. It's doubly so for birders. A narrow 'birdy' window of opportunity opens and closes around this month of blossoms and showers. Where to turn next becomes the issue of the day. Ah, the trials and tribulations of sunny, breezy, rainy, bird-laced -exhausting- May. In the 'oil paint' filter tool in ACDSee these mallards and blossoms and linden tree refelections became even more lovely.
