Decorative Duck 3

Sorry fellow bloggers but I don't know the name of this duck. They are two different ducks taken on different days but are the same kind. They are probably farmyard ducks, but I can't be sure. I will be taking a short break, just for a couple of weeks, so will see you on my return.

I can't help by giving you a name but you photograped them great. Enjoy your break and I hope you will be back soon.
Have a wonderful Sunday.

I don't know the name either, Breathtaking. Great shots. See you on your return. Greetings, Joke

TexWisGirl said...

just beautiful, they are!


i hope your break is a good one! will miss you!

Dear Sonija your photos (with or without name) speak for themselves!!! I wish you a really nice holiday and many beautiful photos! Warm hugs, Rita.

NickMorgan said...

I suspect it may be a domesticated form of mallard duck, such as a call duck or, as you suggested, a farm yard duck. They are lovely pictures, no matter what kind of duck it is.

Rohrerbot said...

I'm not sure but it looks domestic! It's a mutt!:) I can't count them on my hikes and they are such beautiful birds. Still very nice shot:)

Jerry said...

Yes I go with the farmyard duck theory. Lovely shots - hope you have a nice break, Jerry!

S. Etole said...

Enjoy your break. The ducks are quite beautiful.

Adam said...

great species of duck

Linda said...

Great shots! Ducks do not worry about staying with their own color so we may be looking at hybrids.

very pretty and nice markinggs!!!!

Len said...

I assume you must be going to the Algarve. I wish I was coming with you. It's absolutely miserable here. Not even warm enough for ducks but certainly wet enough!

Hi!!!.. Nice pictures of this lovely duck.. Regards from Spain..

Breathtaking said...

Marijke
Thank you dear! It's a hybrid of some kind, but a very attractive bird.

Bags packed and all ready to go on our Easter break, see you!!

Breathtaking said...

Joke (Jokes Camera)
As you have said before, if it is a thing of beauty, it really doesn't matter what it's called.

See you after our Easter break.

Breathtaking said...

Maria
I agree, I thought it very attractive, even if it's pedigree is questionable.

We are off to the coast tonight for our Easter break in the Algarve
it will be a nice change of scene.

I also think this feral hybrid is a beauty.I'm hoping to see other beautiful birds further south, in particular the Bee-eaters.
See you:)

Breathtaking said...

Rita Vaselli
Thank you my dear:) We have been having many rainy days here,so are
going in search of some sun, and hopefully some nice photographic opportunities.
Warm hugs and kisses.

Hello Nick! Nice of you to pass by and leave such a kind comment.

I prefere to know the names of my post subjects, but if after research I still don't know, then I post simply to share some their beauty. I'm so pleased you like the photos:)

ShySongbird said...

Hi Sonjia :-) Yes, I would think some sort of hybrid, rather distinctive though and lovely captures.

I also enjoyed the lovely photos of the butterfly on the previous post which I somehow missed :-(

I hope you enjoy your Easter break, have a rest and have fun! :-)

Rohrerbot

Hi Chris:)
I'm quite sure your identification is right Chris.Thank you!

With or without pedigree I love them all, and also think these are beautiful birds.

Friend of HK said...

Jerry
Thank you Jerry! We have been having such a lot of rain for March
that we are traveling further south
for our Easter break, in search of some dry and sunny weather.Hope you are getting some decent weather
where you are:)

Breathtaking said...

S. Etole
Thank you Susan:) Glad you like the ducks!

Breathtaking said...

Adam
Yes, it's a pretty looking bird!
Enjoy your Sunday,..see you when I get back.

Breathtaking said...

Linda
Thank you Linda:) Yes it's true!
They can be quite promiscuous. adding to identification confusion.

Enjoy your Sunday, see you on our return.

Breathtaking said...

Susan
They are indeed very pretty. It was quite a dull day when I made these shots, and their white feathers looked truely beautiful.

Breathtaking said...

Len
Hello Len:)
You assumed correctly! We have also been having weather for ducks and are in need of some dry sunny weather.We leave tonight to avoid the traffic.

See you on our return.

Ana Minguez Corella

Breathtaking said...

Friend of HK

Thank you so much:)It was the first time I had seen them also.

Breathtaking said...

ShySongbird
Just in time to answer your lovely comments which are always so welcome.
A hybrid probably, but distinctive enough to catch my eye, and share his beauty.So glad you liked both posts Jan,.. and you always catch up, if you miss one.

Now I'm closing the lid of the computer, and getting excited about our journey this evening.
Warm hugs, and I'll see you on our return.
