    I often tell my husband that I'm aspiring to be the world's greatest chicken photographer. Maybe I should be the world's greatest duck photographer too. Ducks certainly are a lot more fun to shoot (with the camera).

    I took these pictures of my Welsh Harlequin hen today. I think they turned out well, and I'm bursting with pride. Isn't she a pretty girl? If any of you know anything about what a good quality hen should look like, please tell me what you think of her. She is a year old, and I think she's pretty good, but I am still learning.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Please enjoy my pictures!

    I am glad you laughed. That picture makes me happy. Maybe I should frame it so I can have something to giggle at after a hard day!

    Oh, that third photo!!!! Have I seen that look on my ducks' faces before?!?! Perfect!

    I am not a specialist, just a duck lover. And she is lovely!

    Oh, you must be so excited for your gander. I want a pair of geese SO badly! I'm sure you'll love him to pieces!

    Oh my heavens, these are outstanding pictures!!!

    Your camera catches the light, water, and color so well! Out of curiosity, what kind of camera is it? Gorgeous duck, by the way!
