Weekly Photo Challenge: “Extra, Extra”

by Miki Kuwabara

This week, we are challenged to share a photo that has a little something extra…for example, an unexpected visitor, or a tranquil landscape with a splash of color.

While taking a stroll outside of a shopping center, I spotted 2 unexpected visitors who provided lovely splashes of color in a tranquil fountain area!


Extra, Extra!

Extra, Extra!

At first glance, Mr. & Mrs. Duck seem to be enjoying a nice swim. But upon closer inspection, I find something extra funny! Each duck is resting on a fountain head!

Resting my webbies.

Resting my webbies. 

Me too.

Me too.

    Silly me, I thought ducks could float. These must be a pair of the very rare lazy mallards. 🙂

    You’re right, and very sharp, to spot the duck standing on a fountain head. Maybe it didn’t want to get wet, or maybe it was feeling cold that day. Great close up shots of the duck. It’s usually hard to photograph animals as the are always moving spontaneously 🙂

    • Thank you Mabel! It was hilarious to see them standing on the fountain heads.
      As for the close-up shots, most animals don’t seem to be fearful around me. Usually, they just watch me take pictures of them.

        It’s good animals aren’t afraid of you, so it’s easy for you to get shots of them. For me, the animals especially birds like to run the other way when I approach. I must look intimidating or something 🙂
