I’ve been trying to save this not-so-well focused photo, because I love this little duck scratching its neck (I’ve never seen that before) and the ripples in the water. I hope the quirky coloring did the trick. Taken at Seminole Park in Seminole, Florida.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Oh how cute… I love those little ducklings.. Terrific capture, Dot.

  • Thanks so much, Carol. I almost threw this photo away so many times, but there was something about it that I so very much wanted to save. It happens now and then.
