These ducks seem to live such a hard life.
There are a few parks I go to occasionally that have several types of ducks. These two beauties jumped in the water for a quick dip on a hot day.
I think the reason the ducks like living in the local parks is they feel secure. No will shoot them there. They can bask in the sun or take a quick dip in the lake. They will even get fed by some of the many people who cross their path. I love to photograph ducks because they are quite unique looking.
Life is just easier for a duck in the park.
