Blue and golden

This sweet little duck seemed to be sleeping while standing..  luckily it had found a quiet place.
Photo taken last month in the indoor mangrove of Burger's Zoo in Arnhem.

I'm linking to Saturday's Critters.

  3. I think that's the most colorful duck I've ever seen. And yes, they do appear to sleep while standing. I notice it has a tag on its leg, also...maybe so if it somehow got out it could be tracked and found.

  4. A clever trick. Some waders of course can not only sleep standing up but do it standing on one leg!

  5. Even taking the duck's photo couldn't get it to open its eyes. A very tired duck with beautiful colours. Nice capture, Marleen.
