Default Odd Duck

This is one strange bird, the Black-bellied Whistling Duck. It has a combination of colors including brown, black, white and grey with bright orange bill and feet. It makes a strange whistling sound, as implied by it's name. The chicks start out looking like any other ducktaking on the colors as they mature.

That first one is a very nice picture and what a strange looking bird. But I think it would be excellent camouflage.

I think it's actually quite elegant ! Like #2 - interesting bokeh, what lense where you using ? The 150-500 ?
