Duck

female duck

I can always rely on ducks. They're one of the few birds that don't fly off the moment I get my camera out! Swans, geese, seagulls and pigeons also seem to love having their photo taken :-)

Ducks are one of the most fun creatures to watch. Most of my bird pictures are ducks or geese too. Such friendly animals.

They are just so graceful and I love the coloring on this one. You are right ducks, pigeons and seagulls are little divas and pose for photos.

I sometimes think my pets can hear the cogs in my brain turning because they always move when I try to sneak out my camera!

I love ducks. They are so... cute, for want of an obviously better word. This young lady looks so healthy!

I love the definition of the feathers. Those oriental painters really get it right.

This duck is muck lovelier than the ones in my lake across from the apartment. They are just plain ugly to say the least. lol...I remember the ducks up in Ohio being much prettier and friendlier.

Yeah those darn Eagles always take flight the moment you're ready to photo it.
