A good day for Ducks

With our atrocious weather today there was only one thing to do. Ducks!!smiley


Great collection of duck photos Rick!

Looks like you had a break in the weather for the Pacific Black duck shot. I always like those ripples pushed out in front of the water birds.

Those shovellers are remarkable looking ducks.

Thanks Whistling Duck.

Photos were taken at Laratinga Wetlands. A series of lagoons provides some sheltered areas.

I was surprised at the Shovelers and Freckled ducks, probably half a dozen of each.

There were also quite a few Australasian Grebes.

What a great way to spend a rainy day in my opinion. The Pacific Black duck in photo #4 has some distinct reflections and shows the rain water beading on its back. I saw my first Australian Grebe last week-end. It might have been a young bird because it was much smaller than I had expected it to be.
