Odd Shots: Duck Tipping

Three mallard drakes were swimming side by side yesterday. Perfectly synchronized, they all oddly tipped and rose at the same time. I always enjoy watching duck (and geese) feet wave in the air when they tip. But I noticed a couple of other things in these photos . . .

. . . the feet should be held underwater for balance . . .

. . . and just before they tip over, they look as if they are capsizing!

  1. Very funny photos! I love that first one with the three bums in the air!

  2. Now that is odd! Great capture too.

  3. Very cute shots! You had to be quick to get those! My odd shot is HERE

  4. I usually don't comment on memes I haven't participated in, but I just HAD to comment on this! It just cracked me up, and it was such GREAT timing on your part to capture this!!! I LOVE it! Besides, since I'm one of your biggest fans, I'm allowed to comment on ANY of your posts, even if I'm not a member of the meme... which I probably should be, huh? Yeah I guess I should. Am I rambling? Oh yeah, I'm rambling - sorry!
    Luv ya!

  5. These gave me a great chuckle as I pictured them all going under together.

  6. I'm late but I'm finally here. I have never witnessed such duck antics -- thanks for sharing! Fits odd shots perfectly!

  7. That "capsized" photo is great!

  8. Cool captures! How fun! I absolutely LOVE watching ducks, geese and swans tip! It's particularly funny with swans who look so graceful--sticking their butts up in the air.

    We're back from our trip to the Pinery.

  9. The ducks looks funny. Great photos !

  10. And they blend right in with the stumps. I suppose they are grateful to the beavers for this camouflage!
