What's with the duck thing? I saw something about posing a duck on another thread?

It's a POTN tradition to post a photo of a duck when you buy a new camera or lens. :)

I think that's with many camera forums. I guess cause they are cute and easy to shoot?

I only took my first duck shot yesterday - despite having my camera since Sept!

I didn't know about this tradition either until recently, so can only apologise for my lack of quacky feathered pond life up until now.....

It's probably a small part of the reason for this tradition, but I just love the whole concept of 'shooting ducks' - a bit like the old fair grounds, or English gentry on a game reserve.....just with f/stops instead of bullets....

This picture is giving me the creeps! Something to do with the geneticly engineerered duck stock on astroturf eating some kind of manufactured duck chow.
