Twice as nice (or, sitting ducks).....!!
Australian Shelduck slumbering alongside the Swan River when we were walking on Monday. The female, with the white ring around her eyes, completely ignored me, but as I got a little closer the male began making a peculiar honking sort of noise to let me know I was getting a tad close for comfort, fair enough no one likes a lens stuck in their face when trying to kip!! I loved the colours in their plumage and the 'vicars' collars, tres chic! So, after terrorizing the ducks (kidding!), I spotted these two Black Swans sailing regally by, looking back two seconds later those beautiful long necks had disappeared under the water in search of food. It's a weird and wonderful world out there in the wild! It's grey and wet in Perth today, it had to happen sometime, will have to find some colour in other ways. Have a good day, take care.....
