Whitefaced Duck (Dendrocygna viduata). Allso known as the "Nonnetjies-eend". Has black head with white face. Typical erect and proud posture when out of the water. Usually found in large groups and spend a large part of the day on the banks of rivers and dams.
These two were rather suspicious of me pointing a camera at them.
This photo was taken at the Krugersdorp Game Reserve, Gauteng.

it is my first time to see this beautiful Duck they have great eyes and you made a perfect shot and i. think that the first one from the right i. s a male and the 2nd is female and that for:
1: his Neck is much fat the other on
2: as we said ladies is first

These ducks are magnificent, you managed by your technique to make a well colored and very net image Too, I think that it is a madam and a sir behind. Very well raised(brought up) these small animals.
Ces canards sont superbes, vous avez réussi par votre technique à rendre une image bien colorée et très nette. Moi aussi, je pense que c'est madame et monsieur en arrière. Très bien élevés ces petites bêtes.

Intersting bird... for some reason, to me they look like a crossing between a turkey and a duck...
Very good technique here - lively colors, good details and intersting composition.

Very good photo. I think it is great that you got them both in the shot. I have a great deal of difficulty in getting good photo’s like this, as the animals always moves to fast to get a good composition and good focus. I guess you only get this from practice… Beautiful colours and focus.
