I just love their coloring. That first one almost blends right in with the background.
Ann, I know, I almost didn't even see him when I uploaded the photo :)

Your new camera did produce many wonders. The reflection in the water is so nice.

It seemed you spend a lot of time at the SF Botanical Gardens, I wish I can say the same, because you've captured many beautiful photos from your visits. :-)

He, he, I love them, the brown one in the video seems crazy. I could spend hours watching these mallards — and I learned this new word; my Google translator says that in Spanish they are called patos reales. They're so charming!

That are nice photos. The ducks are lovely. Well done Joanne

I always like seeing mallards. Both cameras produced great results. I like the way the female is bobbing under water in the video. She almost turns upside down.
Icy BC said…
Gorgeous photos Jo, and watching the duck went upside down was fun.
Self, I do spend alot of time there, it's very relaxing for me.

Thanks, Doan.

Fullet, she is a little crazy one and so cute. Thank you for sharing that with me, now I've learned something as well.

Thanks so much, Makoy.

Ratty, I was laughing hysterically while watching her, it was so cute. Thanks Ratty.

Icy, Wasn't it though, she was hilarious, thanks.
