Photos of Ducks - put your link in
11 years ago
| Hot!
Get to see the native Australian ducks I saw today. One is white and not often do we see a white one. Rare in Canberra but not in other parts of Australia. Peter took the pictures as I was leaning on the car and had my walking fame to hang onto. We didn't want to frighten the ducks. Here's the link - you can check through the rest of the album if you like - go ahead and enjoy all. http://pictures.care2.com/view/1/310431775 Click on the picture it will make it bigger then press your back button to take you to the thumbsize again to see the next ducks.

They're beautiful, Christine. Do you know what their breed is called? I think the little black ones with white beaks are some kind of coot. Lee

No sorry, coot rings a bell, but ducks are ducks to me, either farm ducks or wild ducks. Just love looking at them myself so haven't checked anywhere or asked. Most people go for picnics were we went (on weekends) its easier being free all week. I havent even got a book about ducks to tell me what they are. But they did look cute. Love Christine

Peter is sorting out the slides, and we have a couple from our honeymoon in New Zealand.  When he scans them in I'll let you all know

I have added another duck

This is a strange looking duck.  The pictures from the honeymoon of the ducks were on camera so will have to scan in sometime.  Hope you enjoy this duck.  On wild animals there is also a Cassowary you may like to see.

This is the photo taken in New Zealand on honeymoon 18 years ago.  Its totally different to our local ducks.  This is a wild duck near a water area and a little waterfall.  There were quite a few ducks so I gave it some breakfast cereal.   The others in the album are the Australian ducks in Canberra.

Here,s a link to some photos of ducks, geese, swans in my local park in N.E Yorkshire UK Just 5 mins walk from home! http://www.care2.com/c2c/photos/view/82/366578791/Water_Fowl/

It looks lovely there, Michael.  You are so lucky to have swans.  I've never gotten to see a real swan.  Is it true that they all belong to the Queen?

I didn't know you had Canada geese in the UK.  I would so like to visit there.

Welcome to the forum, Michael.

I used to live on a lake with a gazillion ducks and geese and other birds.

Hi Annabelle,

Your pics are excellent...good enough for a nature book or field guide.  They are lovely.  I'm sorry I didn't see them 'til now.  My eyes are really bad, and I didn't see that you had posted here.  I need to be more watchful.

 

Please do, if you like, join us on our "Anything Ducky or Feathery" thread.  We would love it!

Hi Lee,

Thanks for your lovely comments.  I'm not a professional photographer but I did have an exhibition of wildlife photos (including the ones I posted previously) in aid of an animal sanctuary last year.

Here are some more pics - sorry for the delay, Vicky!

Fantastic photos, Annabelle!   I have never heard of a Smew (duck, right?) but it is gorgeous!   The pretty Barnacle Goose's feather pattern reminds me of a turkey...not in color but design.  Also the way his back body is shaped.  And the little ducks are sweet looking...is the brown one a female?

Hi Annabelle and Vicky,

These pics are gorgeous too, Annabelle.  I've never seen a smew or a barnacle goose so these are a special treat.  I'm not at all surprised that you had an exhibition.  You are very good.

 

I envy you and Vicky that talent.  I just don't seem to be able to take a good pic.  My eyes and hands are just too bad for it.

 

I saw your pics when you posted them and thought I had commented.  I'm sorry it took me this long to see that I hadn't.

Hi Vicky and Lee,

Thank you both for your lovely comments.  Smews are classed as 'sawbill ducks'.  They're not commonly seen in the UK but I took that photo in a bird reserve.  Likewise, the photo of the Barnacle Goose was taken in the same reserve.  I loved what you said about the goose's feather pattern, Vicky!  And yes, the brown duck is a female.  The other duck has a slightly unusual colour but someone said that it must have some domestic genes.

I hope you will be posting some more pictures/videos soon, Annabelle. They are very enjoyable   In fact we might see them better if you posted them in our Anything Ducky or Feathery thread.  Unfortunately, we sometimes miss coming to this thread and we don't want to miss any videos or pictures you post.   Here is a link to the thread:

Thank you Lee for your comment about my picture taking.     It is understandable why your pictures may not turn out as good as you want with your eyes and hands in the shape they're in.  But no matter what, I'm sure they're worth looking at.

I will certainly visit your Anything Ducky or Feathery thread and post some pictures there when I have a bit more time.

We can't wait to see more of your pics, Annabelle....we'll be waiting whenver you have time to visit.

Hi Paolo!!   Good to see you again.  I love the pic of the ducks and thanks for sharing the link.   I read the story of the Marine reunited with a puppy he saved and shared it on Facebook.   Wonderful news that he could bring him home!  I will go later and look at more of the stories you shared.
