    I like to think of myself as a (modern) Southern Belle...and I'm not offended. I just let it run off like water on a duck's back....:biggrin:
     
  12. I think of you as a Southern Belle also Leigh, if ever I saw one...but I fail to see what the connection is with the duck caption...
     
  13. LOL, Frits I think we southern belles are gently picking at ya!

    Maybe just a little...:wink:
     
  15. OK, y'all :smile: had me going for a second...:biggrin:
     
  16. Wow, those are some sharp, pretty photos of some really ugly critters, Frits and Dave!
     
  17. Thanks Sommer.
    You know - sure, these ducks are generally regarded as ugly. But ugly here probably is more like "different from a perceived standard". I would argue that these are more photogenic then many a mallard (portrait wise). I thought they were cute.
    Had a bit of an attitude also :smile: , more like a goose. I wouldn't get too close to these...
     
  18. Excellent although I suspect the Belle is a Beau
     
  19. Aarrgghh, burst my bubble John :smile: . Proof of what I know about birds...:biggrin:
     
  20. Well I am not that sure, no way I was getting that close.
