Off We Go…

Off we go…

Moments after this image had been captured, this pair of Australian Wood Ducks took the plunge.

These ducks are less common around the park than the Chestnut Teals. Like the Teals, they are often found in pairs.

Off we go...

Off we go…

It’s a delight to watch their interactions.

A Regal Duck.

Okay, that isn’t it real name. But to my mind, it’s bearing warrants such a title.

I can’t resist taking multiple photographs of ducks, whenever they fly into the local swimming baths.

I hope you like this one of a female Australian Wood Duck as it struts on the river’s promenade.

Australian Wood Ducks

Off I go!

So thinks this lovely Australian Wood Duck.

These charming ducks are less common than some other species in the river baths. The female can be distinguished by her paler head and white stripes over and under her eyes.

Sometimes I see a pair grazing together on the nearby grass.

Don’t you agree that there is something particularly endearing about ducks?
