At home, get within 100 meters of a duck and it flies away.... at this spot, they come up to you and beg for food..... But I must admit that it is impressive when a thousand ducks start marching up to you and surrounding you.....AvTvM said:luckily, nature will soon enough regulate the problem caused by stupid "animal lovers"...

That's how I got bit by a mallard. I had just fiddled around with a small bag of chewing gums, and the sound interested the ducks. When they got close I kneeled and rubbed my fingers against each other in the mallard's direction... Since I didn't have anything to offer he stretched his neck out and bit me.Valvebounce said:Hi Don.
A couple of nice shots, we went to a local bird reserve, they provided bird food for some of the birds (many enclosures had a don't feed me sign) and every duck for miles knew this, if you had a bag they would follow you, it was like the being the Pied Piper! ;D In fact if you rustled a paper bag of any kind ducks would appear just to check! :

I think it has started already, the drake above the Ph in the watermark seems to be fading away already, or maybe he has been time traveling and messed with his past! ;D
