Camera Critters

A sitting duck!

Like the saying goes be careful or you might find yourself being a sitting duck.

This duck actually was lame, one of its webbed feet being injured in the past and now a permanent injury. We watched her as she brought up her babies throughout the spring and now here by herself. It really looks painful for her when she trys to walk. She sure can scoot away fast though when you try and get close to her.

Great shots!

I'm with EG. It's good to know she can still move fast enough to scoot. She's a lovely girl.

She is a very beautiful girl, like the others I'm glad to know she can still move fast when she needs too.

Thank you for stopping by and for the lovely comment on my Mandarin duck post. The Mandarin ducks are very closely related to Wood ducks but the Mandarin, native to Asia, is smaller.
