I love my pretty feathers! by 


Canon PowerShot SX260 HS; 1/320s, f/6.3, ISO 160, focal length 65.6mm (35mm equivalent 382mm); AUTO setting
Dedicated to my daughter and her boyfriend, who often care for birds and small animals who are injured or helpless until they are ready to live on their own

This duck and its mate flew overhead and landed in my daughter’s pool, where they enjoy a swim on a regular basis. I took this from the deck on the other side of the pool when the ducks came out of the water and walked around a bit. Taken in Seminole, Florida, USA.

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.

    How lovely to have such esteemed visitors to one’s pool, Dot!!! Looks very contented after her swim! ;o)

  • Thank you, Krys. It was a fun experience, one that is not unusual for my daughter. Our pool is screened in, hers is not. I’ll put a picture of the male up next.
