Look, Roy, it is the boufant sisters...as if one of these party girls weren't bad enough...sheesh...hanging out with the n'er do wells, the canadian geese...you know, these two have been sited with that Mallard, the one that Lah knows, from the secret meeting....These girls are bad news...trashy, hanging out behind the park bench, looking for the popcorn train, with their boufants...always just the perfect waddle..and for all I know they have paddled around the pond, one too many times, look at them.. they are a pair, hmmm. Tryin to show off, down at the pond...Babes of the duck set...wonder who does their hair..just enough of a poof to be oh-so stylish..and ever popular. No such thing as a bad hair day with these two a little moouse a little spray..makes a ducky happy day....The others pale in comparison. I wonder where they left their Harley jackets...if they don't watch out, it will be back to rehab, with Britteny"web toes" Spears..and Lindsey "oh my pin feathers" Lohan.

Good ducks, gone bad. Who could have forseen this tragedy.

OH, yeah, csmonte...perfectly feathered...those little mallards sure get around, don't they? beautiful grand goose, too...peaking from behind the tree...love them both, and wonder where you took these, with that pretty pine tree sheltering the goose...

It's ok, Roy, I know about the messes. Will check back in and see if you have managed to capture..(digital) the errant fowl.

Fowl...or foul.. From whence they got their name...lol..watch where ya walk...

thanks for the reply, these were taken at the botanical gardens in MO. We were there for a different reason that day so, time was very limited. I'd like to go back once the most tree's fill out.

two geese and a floaty rat....works good. Love the refection in the wadda...and you took this gem with a point and shoot? Next time you go out with your camera, and think that there is nothin great goin on...if you can find a duck, or geese, or swans, get the shot, and come over here to da ducks..

I check here all the time...isn't it about time for baby ducks? Oh, I think it must be almost time!!

thanks for this serenity, I like it, alot!!

I just came back from a walk in the park and got many duck and goose shots. I had my telephoto macro lens on, so it was somewhat difficult to get them from close by.

I'll save more for other days/posts....


Bob... those little ducks are adorable! Great family shot.
