Comical Moments

Everyone has to scratch, and sometimes that moment it takes to respond, when this  Mallard with her ducklings breaks out of the serene motherly pose, is the moment I like to capture.

The next one is similar , this female goldeneye came out of the pond, made eye contact and came straight toward me except to scratch, then veered away, probably because she saw that I didn’t have any hand-outs.

  8. Very fun capture. 🙂 I’ve taken a few photos of ducks just as they’ve blinked… it makes for a very odd-looking photo.
