A Close Encounter,

with a Muscovy Duck


Some would say he is an ugly duckling,


but any creature that lets me get this close to them,
is beautiful in my book!!


I do think, that he thought, I had food!!

  6. I wish I had one of those. I like those kind of birds, they aren't really a duck are they? it seems I read that somewhere. You got really nice shots of him.

  12. I don't see one single ugly thing about that guy. I think he's just too adorable.

    Do you know I saw a bird sitting on my rocking chair outside this morning and immediately thought of you. How funny is that?

  13. He definately isn't the prettiest but he does look very cute and he did let you get close for some wonderful pictures.

  14. I am not fond of ducks. They scare me. They will take a quick nip at you. I guess I have seen too many t.v. programs where this has happened.
    Your photos are beautiful.

  15. You're an animal whisperer, we all know that! Great shots ~ charactered ol' guy...kind of a "mutt" ... I see a little turkey, a little duck and a bit of sea gull in him!

  16. WOW! What close-ups!!!

    And LUCKY you. Blogger did not install that *new comment thingy* here!

    I didn't even want it, and Blogger still installed it, in my blog comments. And now, many of my Dear Readers can't comment in my blog.

    If you don't know what I'm talking about, please read at the top of my Sidebar. And click on the link, I give there.

    Please and thank you!

    Gentle hugs,
    A "Grumpy" Auntie

  17. Maybe he was expecting the food for payment for the photo shoot?

    I do agree with Jill that he looks turky-ish, like a ducurkey!

  21. I can't see any "kinda cute" in all that ugliness, but at least he has a good personality...
