Relaxing Ducks Eating

This is the picture I took of my duck friends as I had walked with them to the back yard sanctuary.  They are soooo relaxed that they ignore my presence.  They put their backs to me in total trust.  I stay back about 2 feet from them and just politely talk with them.  This is a Drake, "Candy" and a Gander, "Dandy".  I like those names for them.  They each have a personality.  People ask me if they are dirty.  They do stay sometimes all day but they are not dirty.  They rarely poop in my yard.  Most of the time they eat and fly away. 

Have a beautiful day.  Marilyn

I love this photo. We used to have a pair of ducks that brought their ducklings to our yard every Spring, probably because we had a tiny in ground pond, just big enough for Mama duck to relax in. Plus we had bird food all over the ground that they used to love to eat ... ;)

Thank you so much for the kind comment. I love those little guys I feed all year and that includes squirrels, birds, opossum, woodchucks, skunks, raccoon...any little critter who wonders into my backyard is in his/her sanctuary and I believe they know it. Marilyn
