Fort Worth and Ducks

On our way to Robert and Barb's house, we stopped to chase ducks. Just because. And some of these critters were really, really ugly (but not my brother!)



But as it turned out, my brother and the duck color-coordinated their outfits.









Such a simple thing, but so much fun: stalking ducks, chasing them with my camera. And it's a very different pleasure when you don't have to pluck your kids out of the water or rescue them from mud. But even better. . . the water was not frozen! quack.

Duck's are very interesting aren't they? TFS. Great photos.

Nice ducks! Well, except for those ones that look like they've been drinking radioactive waste. ;)

The duck pictures are awesome! Except for the one with the red face. I think it is the ugliest duck I have ever seen. It did walk with a cute but jerky strut.

Funny!

Man, that red and black duck is truly bizarre! Definitely looks like he was designed by a committee.

Those are some diverse ducks! They look like completely different types of birds.

That one duck looks like it crossed with a rooster! Fun shots and you're right, I bet it's much better when you're not worrying about the kids falling into the water. :)

I think the bizarre looking duck is a Muscovy. Based on this web site: http://www.birds.cornell.edu/crows/domducks.htm
