Ducks on display

I don’t know why ducks are so much fun to photograph.  They’re just ducks, after all – never one of my favorite animals.  But everything about them works in photos; the colors, their behavior and often the surroundings they are in…

Today was a gorgeous day in Central Park – a balmy 52 degrees, and it showed.  People thronged the paths and played football in the Sheep Meadow.  Wollman rink is open for ice skating and it too, was packed.   I took photos of it all, but spent the largest chunk of time sitting on a rock watching a small group of ducks take part in what seemed like a duck spa outing.   They were all preening and bathing and flapping around, in between stints of serene floating on the water.   It was great.  Here are my faves:

About Amy

Amy Milstein was born and raised on a farm in Indiana, but after 20+ years considers herself a full-fledged New Yorker. She is married with two kids, who do not go to school but are instead life learners. This means they learn by living in the world (real life ) instead of hearing about it and simulating it in a classroom. With her family, Amy loves to travel, read, watch movies, write, sew, knit - the list is endless.

    Little Mallards!! They were enjoying the temperature also. They have the most beautiful colors (my opinion). The green is almost iridescent! My favorite is the last one; the one where it is calmly floating with great reflection.
