Found myself on the mean streets of a Nature Conservancy and caught this rather unflattering moment of a duck. How this compromising image came about will be revealed tomorrow...
Super title :) .. can't wait for the big reveal tomorrow!

Looks like he's on his mobile phone!!! Love the blue and orange - great capture.

Amazing balance, he is leaning back left, yet still upright. Far better than the geese.

Like he is cupping his ear to hear better ! Looking forward to the sequel !

Ferait il sa gymnastique du matin ou simplement un brin de toilette? J'aime les couleurs soutenues de son plumage.

Ducks seem to be kings of balance, it seems ;) Super scratch-scratch timing !

@k@: He was very itchy and gave me lots of opportunities. :)
Nice capture, with this funny posture
18 Oct 2010 8:56pm
I hope he checked his itch and its gone. Same old itching game for people.
Wonderful capture, can't wait for next one.

@john4jack: It gets even sillier! :)
wow, what a funny capture, Betty

I hate when I get my foot caught in my earring. :|
18 Oct 2010 9:20pm
@Larry Lefever: You're right! It was an emo duck with body piercings. I used the long lens just in case. ;)
Wonderful details, great picture.
18 Oct 2010 9:41pm
i should have known :)))

" Huh? What's that? I can't hear ya' "
A darling creature, can't wait to see what's next!
18 Oct 2010 10:35pm
@DULCIE: LOL. Speak up, Sonny! It struck me that way, too. A Happy Conversation Hard Of Hearing Duck just didn't roll off the tongue quite as well. :)
He's gorgeous! Lovely shot Bettina!

Funny and cute image !

When you have an itch you just have to scratch. Even when it looks slightly undignified.

Goood job. Bravooo. : )

Ha, ha, good one. Can't wait for tomorrow. Just made the drive back up to Chico. My eyes are TIRED from driving. Not going to get any ducks up for a while, but look forward to seeing more of you, Becky and San's.
Sure was fun.
19 Oct 2010 4:42am
@LauraS: Yep, it sure was! Tomorrow's picture will prove it! ;) Glad to hear you're back safely. Come back soon!
Ha! Looks like duck Tai Chi!
19 Oct 2010 5:19am
@Stephen: Become a Duck Tai Chi instructor. That's one way to avoid the plum sauce.
Very great capture of this rarely seen action!
19 Oct 2010 5:28am
@flyingwind风飞扬: I waited for hours to capture this moment!! ;)
having seen the cause i understand why he's scratchin' behind the ear.
19 Oct 2010 8:13am
