Ducking and Diving

A peaceful afternoon walk along Llangollen Canal was suddenly disrupted when some Ducks started flying in and scrapping among themselves.
You should have seen them, Ducking and Diving, reminded me of the fight between Henry Cooper and Muhammed Ali - 2 all time Greats.

A sign of spring for sure Stewart..... by the way do you know how to make a duck sing?

Put it in the oven till it's Bill Withers


I did enjoy the walk, and you 100% right though very tired today my mind was all the better for the outing... I will not be winning Gold this week if I can not get something better that I did... maybe another trip out is on the cards... ;o)

It does look like they are having some fun or taking a serious bath.

Yep. When the electric goes off a whole lot of people will be in super big trouble all over the world but the industrialized nations will feel it worse than most others. Then the Internet will be the least of their worries.

You really captured lots of action. These shots are great. You always have amazing header pictures too.

Mac: I've never seen a major squabble like that one. I think some testosterone was being tested.

It's Spring and the ducks are territorial. One of them is at the top of the gene pole and letting the other know it. He may even be squabbling with kin. I think it's wonderful that you were able to capture so much of their natural activity. You have been blessed dear SM.

Gattina said...

What a fight there was a female involved I am sure, lol !

RuneE said...

Fighting ducks are a "treat" to watch - and difficult to captured. You have done well.

PS I shot at least five different lorries, but that I was so lucky... :-).

Excellent action shots. This was my task on my photography course this week and it's not easy.
