Hello friends,
I would like to introduce my regular friend that paying me a visit 2 or 3 times daily!
She will just walk in to the house and telling me that she is here, if the door is close she will call out too!
This photo is taken right in front of me after feeded with bread from my hand and she will bring me outside to feed her partner with her!
She will hang around the house for a while and fly off! funny thing about it is that my two cats never have trouble with them at all!
just sharing with you and thank you for viewing!

Hi Tony
Cute capture! You should go to a horse feed store and pick up some oats, rolled or crushed, it's probably healther than bread. I've heard some bad stories about bread and birds. This is just to cute having a duck come into your house.
TFS Janice :D

What a cute friend you have, very lucky to have her visit! Enjoy!


Hi Tony,
Beautiful shot. This is your new friend? Super!
Superb pov, light and dof.
Great composed.
With friendship,

Hi Tony,

It sounds great to have this friendly duck as a frequent friend.
I like the way you used the fill flash to get this clear details on its plumage.
Well done and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Oh wow!
That is such a cool story, tony!
Superb detail and colours in this lovely capture too. I hope the flash did not scare her!

Good portrait and pose, Well done.

Tell your friend she has picked the right person to take her portrait:-) How much more can a person ask, that to have the subject come right up to you for a picture. Nice image of your friend. Give her a treat from me.

Hello Tony, this is a charming story, she is a lovely Duck. I wonder whether she will bring in any Ducklings to visit you next spring! Funny how her husband stays outside. A very nice shot too, nice and clear and sharp showing her markings and eyes and beak well. I love it.
