Yes I know it’s a common Mallard Duck. I think they are a wonderful looking bird and I enjoy photographing them. I found these guys at the Bee Branch Project, enjoying the open water and each others company. I actually think I can see this guy’s eye looking back at me as he slowly swims away.
As I approached (even though I tried to be stealthy) they all started swimming away from me. Not fast just a slow, “lets act nonchalant” type of swim. 🙂
There were probably 50 or more ducks in the creek where I was.
I just stood motionless for a few minutes and they slowly started coming back to where they had been, which let me get up close and personal with a couple of them. After a while they didn’t seem to mind me being there.
That’s it for today. Probably no blog tomorrow as I have a late evening meeting and a busy day so no time for photography. 😦
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Enjoy your day and be careful.
