Ducks in Queenstown Gardens

When we wandered around Queenstown Gardens admiring all the spring flowers on 27 October, we also came across some ducks. I took a few shots and thought I’d share these four with you. Queenstown Gardens, Queenstown Lakes District, New Zealand.

If you look closely you can see this is a mother duck with tiny ducklings


This duck was sweet and I liked the copper-orange chest and orange legs

The paradise shelduck Tadorna variegata is endemic to NZ. More info here

  1. It’s manggo season in Prambanan Jogjakarta. Ducks is always available in all year around. Fruit is something that makes significant different relating to weather. Thank you for sharing. I feel in NZ now hehe.
