Default Ducklings (FZ35)

I was at the park (yes, again) today and was standing very still by a pond taking pictures of some damselflies when this family of ducks swam by. They didn't see me at all and practically bumped into my feet!! I quickly removed the LC55 and manage not to scare them off. Too bad the water looks so muddy....

#2




#3




#4

Great detail saly. Little waterbirds are usually moving targets so, well done! on these.

Really nice saly. Number 2 is my favorite. Looks like the one in the lead is calling out “follow me” to his buddies.

Thanks banksy and jj.

jj - yes, I noticed the little ones were constantly making tiny chirp sounds, I think to keep in touch with their mom.

Absolutely gorgeous series Saly, well done that gal. The last one is my fave, just such a cutie pie.

Thanks Stefan and Diane, they are right at my feet, thus the downward camera angle.
