back off

I guess I got a little too close for comfort for this duck. I was trying to take some photos of the lakefront when I spotted her & she gave me a very stern warning. Point taken.

"Duck, duck, gray duck!?" Good shot of both the assertive duck and rippled water.

I am guessing she has some little ones nearby.

Nice shot though.

Abraham - that's what I thought too but there weren't any other ducks nearby. Maybe she was just having a bad day...

I guess most of the time we don't impose on ducks' "space" -- only people trying to get pix ever come up close to them. They will defend their territory.

I hacked the "virtual porch" today on New Orleans Daily Photo

Or else she's saying, "HEY-That's not my best side...THIS IS!!!"
Love this shot :)
