Floating Fluffbombs

They might as-plode WITH FEATHERS!


Speaking of asploding, you gotta check out sender-inner Tracy M.'s photostream of "Monty," her boid, taking a bath on the kitchen counter. Awesome scchtuff [say in Dana Carvey doing Johnny Carson voice]

I think ducklette fluff is second only to kitteh fluff for me... :)

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 06:37 AM

Holy Smokes! They're so bright they look like little fire-balls. They MIGHT just "as-plode"!

It is not just the cuteness and the fluff, but the incredible lighting that makes this pic so great. Nice catch.

Gahh! And Monty is adorable!! Love da boids I do.

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 07:02 AM

When fluffbombs meet beautiful photography..

Fluffbombs, really, is my new favorite word. And the Monty bathtime is rather priceless :)

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 07:06 AM

I think I just died... Away from work with fever today, but these little fluffbombs made my day. Great word!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 07:08 AM

awwww, little peeperzes! baby duckies are just the sweetest. We used to feed them off our dock & occasionally they'd swim right across our feet if we had them dangling over the side. *sigh*

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 07:08 AM

Wow. That's some great backlighting on the floof. I'd like a few of these for my tub, please.

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 07:26 AM

Why are the ducks amassing such a cute army? Should we be worried?!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 07:29 AM

No worries, Ned. They're not vampire ducks. (Note the sunshine.)

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 07:30 AM

Baby ducks will be the death of me! *faints*

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 07:32 AM

They look like carnival duckies, turn them over to see what you have won!

Oooh, sunlit ducklings! How lovely!!!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 08:35 AM

Can I get a few of these instead of peeps for easter? They look far more appealing.

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 08:39 AM

OMG, ducks, they are everywhere. I like this. Wing nubbies up y'all!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 08:47 AM

Let me tell you guys -- when I was photographing these wee bebbehs they were COMPLETELY unafraid of me! They just swam right up to my camera -- that's why most of my shots ended up blurry :D

Frequent baths can ensure that these duckies receive clean bills of health.

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 10:10 AM

Sunlit duckies have cured me of winter blahs!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 10:25 AM

Vampire duckies,
moving at speed,
in the sunlight.

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 12:04 PM

OMG, Lauowolf... Urduck-hai!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 12:15 PM

Theo, you never know. Maybe all the fluff prevents the sunlight from getting to them.... can you see the *actual* reflection of the ducks? NO!!! For all we know, that could be some tree in the background!! and, if you look closely at the 'reflections' you can see that it tewtally doesn't fit the duckie's proper shape.

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 12:55 PM

Quack-quack-quack :)
They are lovely!

OMG !!1! I-i-i-it's, Count Duckula!!!11!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 01:26 PM

Aren't they precious. One of the cutest things in the world is watching a Mama duck followed by her little parade of ducklings. I've seen normally "road raged" people grin while all the cars stop to let them cross the street.

When I lived in Laguna Niguel, CA there was a mallard & a drake that hung out regularly outside the Ralph's grocery store. They were there late in the evening and early early in the morning. They'd quack quack quack at people coming out, begging for food. I could never resist....digging through my groceries and giving them some (shelled)sunflower seeds or bread.

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 03:28 PM

I think my head just asploded!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 04:49 PM

I love the clarity to capture the individual little water droplets in their fuzziness!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 04:57 PM

Who likes the little little duckies in the pond?

Creepy Sheep
 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 06:19 PM

channeling John Denver.
Sunshine on the duckies makes me happy...

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 06:37 PM

Fuzzy ducks! Ducky fuzz!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 06:39 PM

When you're a duck, you're a duck all the way,
From your first bit of fluff
Til you all fly away.

When you're a duck, well you're not just some nerd.
You got brothers around
You're a family bird.

You're never a loon,
A pelican or vulture.
A pigeon or a swan,
Man, you got your own culture.

When you're a duck
You stay
A duck.

And then they all swim off in formation, sort-of tough like, scaring all the other water birds.

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 06:40 PM

I bet that's what heaven looks like... cute, fluffy, glowing duckies... And they would totally be all "Peep peep - we love you, peeeeeeeeep!" *sigh*

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 07:39 PM

I was just telling my sister the other day that she is a shameful, horrible person for getting her boyfriend ducklings before Easter, when there will be baby ducks aplenty needing good homes after the initial charm has worn off.

That said, these are adorable. My sisters and I, attending the same college, would try to make out paths to classes go past the pond every spring. As an added bonus, we found crawfish and turtles!

mad props (and fingersnaps) for lauowolf!

 |  Jan 22, 2007 at 09:34 PM

SO CUTE! And I love the post title. "Fluffbomb" is a wonderful word.

 |  Jan 23, 2007 at 03:34 AM

YAY for Lauowolf! (You've been really on, just lately, don't think we haven't noticed.)

 |  Jan 23, 2007 at 07:51 AM

I've given up giving up caffeine

 |  Jan 23, 2007 at 10:21 AM

lauowolf - What is this, "caffeine"? It's not in the CO Glossary.

 |  Jan 23, 2007 at 10:34 AM

[sipping dark roast]
That's right.
