Sleeping Ducks (two photographs)

Sleeping Ducks?-2To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

I’ve read that birds tend to sleep with one eye open to warn them of prey. I often see birds with their eyes closed or the inner lid down, not terribly photogenic. I am sure these birds were at least half asleep and wary of danger, I just liked the shapes.

Sleeping Ducks?

  8. The top one looks quite precariously balanced – in fact I can’t be sure that his center of gravity is above his foot. Perhaps ducks sleep with one eye open but not all birds do. My room mate and I once had a baby scrub jay in our aviary for a while (until we figured out why the doves were suddenly all looking beaten and bloody). He would grip onto the side wall and tuck his head so far under his wing, it looked like he had no head.

    • Ducks and geese on one leg helps conserve heat, as for the eyes, lots of birds not all. My error.
