Thank you for being interested in Waterfowl and Waterfowl Art.

Amateur Photographs
We would like to have pictures of all the species of Waterfowl represented here. 

 

*GOOSE FOOT* is dedicated to Waterfowl and Waterfowl Groups! Together we can help each other!

These pictures below are all Thumbnail images. When you click on them a new browser will open with a full size picture.

The pictures here are taken from a digital camera with a ten power zoom. I am putting up as much variety as I come across the different species. I will replace them as I get closer and improve the pictures. Ducks are really skittish and it is difficult to sneak up on them to get their pictures.

An email Joke going around about decoys!!

Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a local Neighborhood tavern. Late in the evening the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated that he could barely walk. 

The man stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five vehicles, the man managed to find his car which he fell into. 

He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off. 

Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine dry night) flicked the blinkers on, then off, honked the horn and then switched on the lights. He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still for a few more minutes as some more vehicles left. At last he pulled out of the parking lot and started to drive slowly down the road. 

The police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a breathalyzer test. To his amazement the breathalyzer indicated no evidence of the man having consumed alcohol at all! 

Dumbfounded, the officer said "I'll have to ask you to accompany me To the Police station this breathalyzer equipment must be broken." 

"I doubt it," said the man, "Tonight I'm the designated decoy."
