OH!!!! Wouldn't ya just flip if you knew your hair was gonna turn out like that on purpose every day? Yet she is in the "look at me pose", and those babies are right behind...lol...

That is a duck parade, if I ever saw one...wonder what kind they are..
My hope is that since they live nearby your house, maybe you will see them again...wouldn't that be fun to keep tabs on those youngsters, and see who ends up with the best poofy hair!

These ducks are something...and I am so glad you had your camera ready...yipeeeeeeee! You know I love em...

Well Patti, since you liked my ducks, here are a couple more pics from that same scene

They look too innocent, I bet they are hatching (haha) a plan for world domination.

The sound of my shutter release didn't gel with them, and they took off soon after spotting me. They didn't really fly, they kinda half ran on water, half glided as they bolted away.

Image

EDIT: Hope you don't mind but I've replaced the [img]..[/img] tags on that firt image with [url]..[/url] tags as, at 1214 pixels wide, it breaks the forum frame. Normal maximum width is 1024 pixels please. Bob Andersson.

I loved your ducks, perfect quackage...and I am so glad you put them down here, after the lockdown..had no IDEA you had swans of THIS caliber, are they not just so elegant...their lines...that one with the reflection in the water blows me away...

and those little baby ducks can MOVE...that photo is so surreal, I just love it...what were your settings on that one, to my eye it is perfecto!!
Those are pretty bizzare looking quackers...

I know you have more! total novice rules...I am telling you what, you may not have had your camera very long, but you are taking some awesome shots...and I sure appreciate them.

and you know I can hardly wait..to see all the rest of the ducks...


love,
patti

Mast, I think this MUST be Mrs. Doubtfire, in duck form...I love her...look how nice and round she is, with those feathers colored just so...she needs a hand bag, and I bet she has a waddle that puts the rest to shame..

And if you haven't seen Mrs. Doubtfire, go rent it...it is a funny old movie...best for rainy days...

I even like the nice framing you did here...works of art, Mast, need framing, and here she is, prepared for her portrait, stunning, not a feather out of place.. she is, quack-art, I am most certain...

Where did you find this web footed waddler? Close to your home?

Serenity, I love the pondering duck...what a great shot, it would look fabu on the On Assignment page, for reflections too bad it is a little older...what a good eye you have here...looking over duckage shoulder...little did you know, that someday you would find a spot for this quack on a forum...am so glad you did...

oh, sns, what is a little quack and waddle among friends, YOU are due for a duck...I know you have one somewhere....lol..this duckage isn't dominant, just a good fun place to fluff up our feathers, and have a nice connection...after all, everytime I take my camera out, now, I wonder if quackage will be present, and try to get just one teensy shot to drag back here and post...I love all of these ducks...
they are easy, funky, and a little off kilter, geese and swans are bonuses.
This is a place to exhibit fowl intent... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Woah patti, what a big quack! :lol:

Alright, I'll grab my camera, and try to get a pic of a duck. Not many in the sub-urban area :? (hint hint)

Urban duck! (as the 100th reply on page 7 of this thread :) ) And for crying out loud its not a chicken...

    Image


Screw the no-Live View...im so getting Live View on my next DSLR...

Sorry patti for having to submit one made of porcelain..theres no duck near my house for like 10 miles or maybe more...

SnS 8)

EDIT: Apologies...I know next to nothing on birds(except that they fly and peck)...the owner of that 'duck' told me it was a pigeon...look its a beak not a 'short bill' like in ducks. But that shot is staying since geese and swans are allowed... :lol: :lol:

Hi mirageii,

No, my name isn't patti so I hope it's OK if I reply.

I did this Google Images search and found a few pictures of Tufted Ducks which seem to match. Can't tell from your photo if the duck has a tuft, though. :?

I was gonna say Miragii's great capture was Bat Man in Duck form, with his mask and cape..or Super Duck... the Orca Imposter....wannabe whale...he is very unique, and those eyes...

Thank you Bob, being the sleuth you are, finding bridges, and ducks, all in a days work...I would not have even known where to start on google trying to track down that beauty.

MELVIN!!! I have never seen ducks like that before! Wonder what those are...and they are really cool...a ring of white, and some rusty colors, plus green and black....love the setting, and the reflection...perfect capture.

and SnS!!! you make my day...urban quackage..am so glad you posted one, we will call him the "sinker"...a land duck...with a soid past...

Whats on the agenda for every body's Saturday....work for me, and then if I can get to the ponds, I will see if there are any special Ducks..

love,
patti
