Duck photo shoot

Last Sunday, hubby and I attended a wedding. The wedding was at a park and in the middle of the park is a gazebo and at the back of the gazebo is a short dam that goes into a river. When gazebo, trees, rocks, bridge, dam, river can be seen in one setting expect to have ducks and some other animals near by. So I had the opportunity to have a duck  photo shoot and here it is.

Ain't that sweet? What do you think they are talking about?

                                               Why they always scratch or pick something?

                                             Here is the dam that goes to the town.

                   I noticed there is a blue and green color on their head. This one is blue is this a male?

                                 This has a green color but has a little of blue. It's very pretty!

                                      Another pair of duck. Try to catch fish?

You caught these ducks in all sorts of interesting poses!


It doesn’t take an ocean
Or a mighty sea,
A simple little raindrop
Is enough for me!

I also like the jewels
Scattered in the grass
After summer thunderstorms
Soak the earth and pass.

There’s also perspiration
Clinging to a nose—
A sign of honest labor,
Or so I suppose!

Wonderful, most wonderful,
Are the seven seas,
But give me downy snowflakes
Clinging to the trees!

I think all of these are drakes (boys). The green feathers are so irridescent that they can appear blue. At least, that is my understanding. And they always fuss at their feathers to keep them tidy and waterproofed, because that is necessary to their survival. That said - I love your shots, especially the one of the water coming over the dam! Just a shimmering sheet of water!!

Lovely shots!
Yes, the males have the beautiful colors. The females are brown. Sad, but true.

males are handsome, at the tail, it curls up. I know, because I helped my parents rear ducks,

great shots of the ducks. :)

I have to say to you that it is hard to open your blog. There is a script running that almost spoiles it. I had to reload several times before I was able to read and comment.
