Duck Hunt

A collection of high quality backyard wildlife photos.
Published by in Unexpected Visitors ·


I suppose you never really know what you might find in your own backyard, but living in the city, I really didn’t expect to find ducks.  Yes ducks.  Two of them, a male and a female mallard duck swimming in the pond.  They were probably eating the minnows which have multiplied in the pond, but that doesn't really explain where they came from or how they even found the pond in the first place.
I believe that I startled them when I went outside to feed the Koi as I didn't expect them to be there.  I went back inside to get my camera, but they had already flown on to the roof and before too long, they flew out of sight.  I don’t really want ducks living in my pond, but it was definitely nice for them to pay a visit.
