Ducks always look cute and intelligent, awesome photography Roger.



Thank you Joan!

Lovely photo! 😀
I went with a friend to take her little boy to see the ducks over here recently, he absolutely loved them! Makes for a nice day out 😊


Thank you for your comments! Ducks are pretty cool!

I love ducks and I love this photo. I am glad you put the link on how to click to enlarge, I was looking for that info. Thank you @rwedgis


Thank you for your comments! Let me know if you have any questions about the click to enlarge.

hi nice to see you again @rwedegis, lucky you can find the wild duck, while in my area it is getting hard to find wild duck. wish you luck with the photo


Thank you for your comments!

Beautiful creature! I bet some of the discarded feathers would be excellent fly tying material.


I'll keep an eye out for feathers for you! We'll be back down there in a couple of weeks.

What a striking image he is!

I just got back last week from Cocoa Beach and Melbourne! Small world!


Thank you! I'll be back down there in a couple of weeks for the winter!

Awesome capture, Roger! Beautiful bird, and I love how you framed it.


Thank you Traci!

That is a great capture! I love ducks, they are so cool looking. We had some wooden ones when I was growing up and I remember just being fascinated by them.


Thank you for your comments!

Beautiful. Great pic. Love the clarity of the subject with the blurry background.
