I had just driven out of the front gate this morning on my way to Adelaide when I had to brake suddenly. Just around the first corner I came across two ducks – Grey Teal to be exact.
They were casually strolling across the road – right in my path – hence the need to brake. As I approached they decided to beat a hasty retreat, so they took flight over the fence and into the nearby dam.
Sorry about the photo above – it’s not the best I’ve shown here on this blog. Searching through my photo collection I realise that I do not have many photos of this species – and those I have are not the greatest in quality. It’s only one of our most common ducks, so there is no excuse.
I need to get out more.
