A Photo a Day of Christchurch New Zealand

Paradise Ducks and a Seagull

I went down to the pond at Ferrymead Park to photograph the paradise ducks and ducklings. Turns out the pair of ducks on that pond are down to just one duckling. They are guarding it pretty closely. Fingers crossed it makes it to adult hood. The ducks were understandably a little shy and ignored the bread I’d left out for them, however the seagull was very happy to swoop in and out with it.

    Paradise ducks are great parents, unlike mallards who are practically child abusers with the situations they lead their ducklings into.

    Few things in life are as cute as a duckling. I like how you caught the seagull, they do not do shy!
