    We've had a duck nesting in our tiny walled garden for the last 3 years. She's really getting to know us now and come's up to the back door looking for food when we are in the kitchen, and feeds out of our hand.

    Here's a few snaps I took of her chilling out by the pond :)

    She's sitting on her eggs now, I'll try to get some of the ducklings when they hatch, probably a couple of weeks from now.

    Cheers :)

    I really like #2. #8 would be absolutely brilliant if you could have captured it from the side!

    Well, isn't she a ham in 5 and 7? She does smile for the camera, now does she not?

    Photo 8 is really well seen and taken and is soooo funny. Well-well-well done!
    And 9 is so very much "duck", you know. It is the German children's song all right!!!
    "Alle meine Entchen schwimmen auf dem See,
    Köpfchen in das Wasser, Schwänzchen in die Höh'" ... Have fun translating that :biggrin:

    What a fun series! She's a looker, and doesn't mind posing. Thanks for sharing these, and I look forward to pictures of the little ducklings.

    Haha thanks. She is a cutie isn't she? :heart:

    I think I do have at least one from the side I'll try to dig out tonight.

    LaFoto, thanks. Translation from the 'net:

    "All my ducklings swim on the lake, head into the water, tail into the Höh"

    Not sure sure what "Höh" is tho ;)

    BTW, I has a dream with you in it the other night!!!! :shock:

    Does she have a name?
    I like the blue under her wing in #6.
    Anyone know what kind of duck this is? I feel like I should, but can not remember at the moment.

    Does she stay year round?
