Pekin ducks

Anas peking


A raft of white pekin ducks (Anas peking) swimming on a small lagoon of water that is isolated from the main river - 漓江LiJiang River in YangShuo阳朔. The rock behind them is a large rocky hill. They seems to be dipping their heads down into the water and rise up again. They are either taking a bath or feeding.


Waters of LiJiang River 漓江, YangShuo阳朔, GuangXi广西, China.


While touring the Li Jiang River at Yang Shuo in China by boat, I spotted this group of ducks floating on a small pool of water isolated from the main river by sand and stones. They were about 100 meters away from the boat. I took a picture of them even though I knew that my camera was not designed for distance bird photography. >>>Map accuracy : 3km radius.

Yes, seems like it.
In China, I have seen a lot of these in farms and in restaurants.
This is the first time I get to see them in the wild.

From what I can make out, most are Pekins.
