    Duck Duck Goose


    Contest Rules:

    1. Any digital photo or digitally-scanned photo relevant to the theme will be accepted within the contest period. In case there's a gray area, or you're not sure if the picture is suitable, check with me first.

    2. Please resize your digital photo to no more than 650 x 490 or 490 x 650 pixels. You may also crop your picture if you wish. You are also allowed to adjust the brightness and contrast of your picture but these should not dramatically alter the look of the picture. But other than those, any form of picture editing or modification is not allowed. This is a photo contest, not a picture editing/special effect contest. You may add a watermark or your name/nickname to the photo for identification purposes.

    3. Upload your photos to any of the photo servers such as imageshack or photobucket. Then post it the relevant contest thread and link your picture using the img command. PM me if you do not know how.

    4. Only ONE picture per member per contest. Once a picture is posted, it cannot be changed other than a total withdrawl by that member from that week's photo contest. Exceptions will be made for modification to comply with the rules, such as resizing.

    5. At the end of the contest period, I will open a poll and every PF member can vote for the picture they like best.

    6. Note that in case we have a large number of entries, I will do the polling in more than one thread. If that's the case, you can vote in each of the polling threads. The photos will be assigned in the polling threads in the order they were submitted.

    7. These pictures must be something that you took, not something taken off someone else's photo albums or taken by someone else. I have no way of checking if you did this, so we'll go by the honor system.

    8. You can use a picture only once. Once it is used in a contest, it cannot be reused in another contest.

    9. Please post only pictures meant for submission in this thread.

    Ideas for competitions you'd like to see? Submit them here

    This is Gus, he was a rescue that we had a few years back.

    I've never goosed a duck, but I did narrowly duck a goose a couple of times.

    Ducks, geese and similar was my intent, but other interpretations are allowed, as long as the link is clear.

    By similar, do you mean other fowl? Or do you want it limited primarily to ducks and geese?

    Thanks! I had to use a fast shutter-speed. If you've ever seen mallards preening, you know that the head-rubbing (seen here) is VERY energetic.

    Water fowl are fine. Other kinds, nope.

    Okay, thanks. That eliminates my idea. But, now that turbo has entered that really great photo with both a duck and a goose, it would be tough to compete anyway.

    Yeah, but can any of them do a front forward somersault with a full twist on a 4-inch beam? My Olga can!

    :)

    Has Olga passed the drug screening test after her last suspension expired? Huh! Thought not!

    It's not really that good a shot, Moonie. More like a snapshot of the neighbors. Andre spends a lot of time around watery places and might set the bar for all of us, anyway. He's probably clicking back and forth between gigabytes of fowl photos right now.

    And was the test administered by a real doctor, or a quack?

    Did you know, that in some populations every fifth drake is homosexual? Those two plan their trip to Maine.

    Lol Borek, I think Amsterdam is closer.

    Anyway I think the Coot qualifies as water fowl. The for cuteness, feeding time of the one day old chicks, the other eggs are still hatching.
