because they’re cute and for no other reason. (That’s all the reason you need, I’d say!) I was taking pictures of the moon, and then suddenly these adorable guys appeared out of nowhere, stepping onto our gravelly beach, completely unafraid of the weird human. My mother later told me that our next-door neighbours feed yummy tidbits to cute ducks. So maybe they expected me to serve them a feast of some kind.
(Oh, look, he’s scratching his tummy!!)
Truth be told, they moved too fast for my manual focus. Or, rather, I’m not quick enough. The fact that it was already quite dark outside made the conditions even more difficult for photographing lively ducks. I would have needed more light, preferably another aperture value and fast shutter speeds.
This phone pic was a bit cute too, so I’ll give you the link.
