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
