Napping Duck

This is my mallard duck, Duck. She was taking a nap when I disturbed her and took this shot. I played around with the black-and-white feature and the contrast on photoshop.

Awww. I agree with you that Mallards are much cuter...but muscovies have the real "creep" factor... :)

Aw, thanks! Bad Mojo, Ducks are great and they have a real attitude. BananaBug, you're right. The original was not nearly as good as this one. The added contrast also helped.

Adorable! My ducks always take naps in the summer in the shade. I have a pic of them in my gallery if you want to check them out. Does Duck migrate? I have rouens (domesticated mallard if you didn't know) and they can't fly. Also cayuga and blue swedish ducks are very calm and of medium weight. I used to have a pekin and cayuga and they had eggs which we hatched in an incubator. The duckling we kept was blue swedish and her name was Shadow. She followed me everywhere and took naps with me until a mink got her and her parents.

Huh... @BirdLover13, your question made me think... DO ducks migrate??? :( beautiful pic, by the way

August 16, 2016

Thanks! @BirdLover13 and @Fungirlpuppypop - ducks do migrate. Domestic ducks are far less likely to, largely because many of them can't fly long distances. Domestic mallards often do fly well, however, so some owners clip their wing feathers to keep them at home. :) We only clipped Duck's wings once; she never did decide to fly south:)
