Two cute ducks hanging around our neighborhood pond.
I’ve been watching these two little ducks this week. They make a very sweet pair, staying quite close together most of the time and especially lovely in the late day sun!
Often they seem to be totally in sync as they drift around the pond.
I am exhausted watching them fish – they probably dive 20 times for every time they come up with a fish.
I think most people would gravitate towards the male with his striking hood.
But I have been very amused by this female, somehow quite exuberant with an extravagant “head of hair!” She also seems a lot more in charge of the agenda than the male, more likely to determine which direction they will head and when they will fly off. He, in my opinion, seems quite enamored of her!
Finally, for some size perspective, here they are, uncropped, using a 560mm lens.
