My World Tuesday: Their Best Side?

In Colorado Spring's Ute Valley park there is a nice little pond surrounded by Cat Tails. The water attracts a lot of birds, especially Red-winged Blackbirds and various ducks. I live nearby, and hike in the park a lot. It's a great little oasis of nature in the city.

I often take my camera and stop at the pond in an attempt to photograph some of the birds. I can't decide if this photo shows that the local Mallards are tired of my paparazzi ways with them and are showing me their disdain. Or, perhaps, they want to be photographed from what they believe to be their best side.

This is part of my world. To see others from around the globe, visit My World Tuesday.

Beautifully catch Russ. You could also have titled this image as synchronous swimming. Cool shot.

You're great behind the camera!!

This is a classic capture - those little legs sticking out of the water put a huge smile on my face.
