George

George is a muscovy duck in Collier County, Florida. He took this photo opportunity very seriously. In fact, he takes everything very seriously. He is one of a group of muscovies that visits our spot on the water everyday. The groups of muscovies eventually move on, and another group comes along, each with its own set of characters. Many people say they are 'Invasive!' but we, humans, also are invasive here in Southwest Florida, so we may as well get to know each other and be neighborly.
