These 3 male muscovy ducks live in a pond in our neighborhood in the next block.They waddle over for either dinner or occasionally breakfast to only our house where the know they will be fed.They are often halfway up the driveway waiting for my wife or me whoever gets home first.We feed them dry corn which is apparently good for them as opposed to bread.We have named them,Marcus,Max and Geoffrey.They are surprisingly not afraid of our 2 dobermans!

I am an amateur photographer and mostly photograph wildlife and have a special love for WILD big cats and birds.I am self taught and have never attended a course in photography.I exclusively photograph animals in the WILD which is always challenging! I use only canon equipment and now have 7d , t3i,and power shot 40 sx hs camera`s and use canon 28-135 mm,70-200mm f 2.8 ,100-400mm f 5.6,and 500mm f/4 lenses.

    They do look like three stooges! Very good story and capture of the three!

  • It is a suburban menagerie,the dogs are fed first,then the ducks,then our neighbors cat not sure if the neighbors even feed it, after that the squirrels eat the duck left overs and finally the doves take their turn!!
