    That's no duck, it's a midget quetzalcoatlus, I saw one just like it, late last night, when I stumbled outa the pub.

    Hey! Where is the duck?

    All I can see is a bloody Bush Turkey.. :D

    Sheesh, we already have enough of those around, particularly in government..


  3. Verified as a duck by intrepid photographer - Geoff. Has he ever lied to you Kath?

    Actually, to be strictly accurate I did not verify it to be a duck. I verified it to be a Kingscliff duck.

    Indeed this is a juvenile quetzalcoatlus, as Justin correctly identified, thought to be extinct in the rest of Australia and the world, but as you can see not around here.

    These things are harder to photograph than you might think. You've got to sneak up slowly and get the shot quickly. Before they have a chance to ring their mothers.

    "Has he ever lied to you Kath?"

    Lol..After reading geoffff's comment above Caz, I would have to say that he is just full of shit. :D

    Btw, geoffff, that your back garden, mate?

    Hi Kathy --- yeah pretty much. that's the deck off the courtyard outside my office. I can see it from where I'm sitting.

  7. It's a Kingscliffe Duck from Queensland, probably Nambour.

    Name's Kevin, he's there to help.
