While stalking the rare justaduck in a local pond to test a Hoya ND2 filter I got a surprisingly good macro of Notaduck...

That's absolutely awesome!


Looks like a Northern Notaduck by the wing patterns, though it may be a Lesser Crested Notaduck. I'm assuming it's somewhat large.

I may have to check Peterson's "Neither A Duck Nor A Goose Guide" when I get home.

I think it's a yellow-bellied notaduck although from the angle the picture was shot, it's hard to be 100% sure. :?

You have NO idea what you're talking about!! The YB has a yellow/gold tip on it's tail, and is not found north of New Mexico! EVERYONE knows that!

<sheesh>

Just kidding of course. For some reason, arguing over imaginary things just cracks me up. My favorite is arguing over which comic book superheroes would win in a fight... "Wonder Woman would kick Batman's butt!"


Besides, I'll do almost anything to save this picture from the Dreaded Page Two Syndrome...

Finally I have a few minutes to thank responders more personally… gotta carve out more time in my schedule! :?

This is a beautiful "notaduck". Stunning image!

whowie, Thanks for your swift and encouraging feedback. I must make a point to respond more quickly to images that I enjoy… reviewing my own posting history I find my commentary plagued by lag time and paltry in content.

PacAce, :shock: Entire paragraphs in three little Emoticons… I think I’ll adopt your lead – Hope you don’t mind if I rubber stamp a quote to improve my own responses [see comments to Whowie !!] :D

Way cool shot. Like the color a lot.
:D :D :D

ssim, Thanks for the confirmation… I had considered saturating the background, but decided to leave it more muted.

That's absolutely awesome!

Scottes, LOL on the banter – your touch of humor is great ( not to mention the vote to keep NotaDuck off page 2 despite ultimately not being of the Lesser Crested variant)


Well, back to work … looking forward to everyone's new Shares this weekend.
