Quacker



Quacker

I took this picture April of this year, when my sister and I went to Greenbelt Park in Makati City before meeting my friend Rhodz in Makati Avenue. I initially took pictures of the chapel in the area when I noticed a boy chasing this duck, so I followed them so I could take some pictures, too!

This duck was a bit aloof, so I was so happy to be able to take this shot. I was happy seeing ducks in a park in the heart of an urban jungle - Makati City is considered the business district of Metro Manila, and here is where you'll see office buildings of different shapes and sizes. Seeing ducks and being in a park is a breathe of fresh air.

ps - aside form the duck, can you spot another critter in this photo?

That's a pretty duck.

I would have missed the other critter if you hadn't asked.

I think I see two other critters. Isn't there a frog on both sides of the pond.

There is something about kids and ducks. They always chase them at our local duck pond too.

The other critter is perfectly camouflaged. Nice picture for a post card.

Wonderful flower photo in the next post and beautiful picture for Camera Critters too. I would have missed the 'less obvious one' if you hadn't asked. It's a BIG one isn't it!
Hugs and blessings,

I saw the froggy immediately ;-) But, then again, you'd expect that from me, wouldn't you? hehe
