It must be breeding time at our local wetlands, these guys are showing there aggressive tendencies where the girls are concerned.



this duck was keeping an eye on his lady







here he warns off the other males









I love this next shot. The duck doing the chasing has a real look of intent in his eyes.

The first ones look like Rudy Duck to me.

The last shot looks soft.

Ha ha, that made my day.

The Ruddy Duck is a blue billed type of duck that you have captured here. That was Ruddy funny!

Nice shots alady. I love the colors you have captured in the first one. They are excellent, and the duck pose is great too.

I don't know what kind of duck is in that last picture, but the blue-billed ducks in the other pictures aren't Ruddy Ducks. Ruddy Ducks don't occur in Australia but guess what these are called? Hehe - Blue-billed Ducks of course!

They look alot like Ruddy's though...

I was just referring to the type of duck in your #1 shot. It looks like "Rudy Duck" like normcar & geoffs explained.
