Duck fight/birding day.

hello,

so, I was out getting pictures of birds today with my camera. I witnessed a fight between two male ducks. They were fighting, on the water. I don't know what they were mad about, but it looked like one duck was trying to drown the other. I got some pictures.

Aside from the duck fight, I got lots of other bird pictures with my camera.

One drawback with my camera. If you want to see the pictures, you have to wait for me to get the film developed. I'm an old school photographer.

I'll post pictures when the film is developed.

Jared

Sounds more like a duck gay sex scene, but do post those photos!

That's funny. I thought the same thing when I saw it. However, they were fighting. Today, I saw two other male ducks picking on a male. I will post the photos. I'm able to get the film in to be developed on the 24th. After that, it will be one or two weeks before I get the pictures posted on the Forum.

I saw something similar last week between two coots. One of them was continually jumping on the other and holding it underwater. I think a duckicide would have happened if another coot had not come charging out of the reeds and chased away the aggressor. A fight or ducksex, I couldn't say. X-rated stuff, though.
