"Recent Photos"

The theme this week is "Recent Photos"  by Kathy.  Mac, Kathy, Lew, Christine and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT on Wednesdays and voting begins after that. 

I saw these ducks last week by the lake. They didn't look like mallards so I had to look them up. They are American Black Ducks. A first for me.
They were a family and not afraid.
The dark color helped to identify them.
I think they are a neat duck.
See what the others show on my side bar.

Neat shots of your American Black Ducks Tom DF, they seem not bothered by you taking their photos, very friendly group.

Not my theme choice but a fill in for our absent member. We miss you Craver VII.

But anyway, great ducks. Interesting to find new ones you haven't seen.

I should have had my camera the other day on the way to the doctor's--the American White Pelicans are back in the Valley for their summer vacation. They were flying in formation over Zillah.

Nice shots of the ducks! I have not seen that species here in Maryland.

I've never heard of that kind of duck, either. They certainly are pretty and very out of the ordinary!
