Jaywalking

Duckwalking? At least she waited for the light to change. Yesterday I went to the most secluded place around here. Today, I went to the 7-11. There is a stormwater retention pond across the street, home of mallards, hooded mergansers, and some of the ugliest geese imaginable.
great catch nice pic

Lol - obivously that bird adapted very well to an urban lifestyle! Cool shot! I wonder what the ugliest geese do look like.

I always hate seeing those guys on the road. Nice capture.

@equinoxe turns out I was mistaken. Even though they looked like geese to me, they are Muscovy Ducks. Still ugly.

@hollandcrew at least this isn't a horribly busy intersection, and it is a neighborhood rather than being a main drag. People stopped. I've seen Canadian Geese on Mercury Blvd and was surprised that there wasn't a major accident.

that is so cool! I love how unconcerned the duck is... and the details and textures of the concrete!

Kind of makes you want to run behind her and shoo her along doesn't it!? Great shot- reminds me of the children's book Make Way for Ducklings- although that's set in Boston.
