But you cannot make them splash!
Actually, my ducks love to troop out to the temporary “pond” created by all the rain we’ve been having, and splash happily away. Spying them through the window, I think to myself, “Now’s my chance!” I snatch up my camera and sneak outside … and they immediately notice me and make a mad dash for “shore” tumbling over each other in their race to get to me in case I have food.
That’s the trouble with being The Bringer of the Food … the animals NEVER act naturally when I show up with a camera.
I think I’ll be needing duck-blinds, but for a whole ‘nother purpose!
After three days of trying, I FINALLY got these shots. Enjoy!
(Oh, and please excuse the wind noise and the camera shake … I had to zoom from quite a way back to get the video … the next video when I stepped closer is, as usual, all the ducks leaving the water to stand around my feet!)
