Your photos of Ducks

A round-up of nature photo challenge #4: Ducks

It was great to see so many ducks from all over the world. To date, 18 of you submitted duck photos. I hope I haven’t missed anyone from the list:

  • Geriatri”X” got us off the mark with a row of sitting ducks.
  • Brian showed us that Australian Wood Ducklings (below) are just as cute as ducklings anywhere in the world!
  • If you listen carefully, I reckon you can hear Judy‘s ducks quacking!
  • If you want to know what South African ducks look like, head over to Aletta‘s!
  • In the UK, Margaret introduced us to Astley Park (and its ducks).
  • XingfuMama showed us the ducks of Puget Sound, including American Wigeon and Goldeneye.
  • Good to know that Mallards are present in North Carolina too, as snapped by Deb.
  • Wondering what ducks live in India? Check out I.J.’s post!
  • From A Day in the Life we were introduced to Green-winged Teal, Shoveler, Hooded Merganser, and some videos of a friendly American Pekin duck!
  • More Mallards from Rebecca including nine on a log.
  • Dawn managed to capture ducks in flight successfully! And yes Dawn, duck butts are funny!
  • A splendid Goldeneye in Calgary was captured by Travelling Nan.
  • Some cute ducklings from Margaret on her village ponds, along with information on the importance of ducks in the food chain.
  • If you’ve ever seen a Wood Duck you’ll know how pretty they are. If not, head over to Cee‘s.
  • Pensitivity101 was lucky enough to get a family of ducklings on her front lawn.
  • “Let sleeping ducks lie!” Isn’t that the saying? It should be, as Woolly found out.
  • Do ducks play golf? Maybe not, but they sure love a verdant golf course, as Kathleen Jennette discovered.
  • Over in Sweden, Maria found some shadowy Mallards. Or was she playing around with special effects?

How are you getting on with Nature Photo Challenge #5: Signs of Spring?


  1. There’s a duck (in Virginia) I started seeing recently. I believe it’s the Common Goldeneye. I’ve been trying to snap a photo of it for two weeks, but every time I get a good focus, he dips underwater and hangs out there for almost a minute 🙂 I’d never seen them where I live until earlier this year.
