Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is “unexpected”. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.

I’m only going to show you one photo for this photo challenge, simply because I think it illustrates it perfectly. I know the Oxford Dictionaries recently named “selfie” as word of the year, but seriously, “photobomb” would have been my pick.

Here’s nature’s version of a photobomb: an unexpected mallard duck flying in front of a white pelican as I was trying to take its picture. Thanks, dude.

    How do you know what kind of bird that is? I can’t tell.

      You can see it’s a mallard duck from the shape and color patterns. There are tons of those ducks out there along with many other birds.

        Well I guess I would know that if I was a bird watcher, sadly I am not I do not take the time during the brief period that the birds fly through the state to stop and gawk at something I cannot eat. But thankyou for the info maybe I’ll try to pay a little more attention next time I see one whiz by.

  2. Nice shot! I love the large birds found around the ocean.
