Duck shepherd at Yongding, Fujian, China

Location: Yongding, Fujian, China (24°38'14.18"N 116°54'27.63"E)

Camera: Canon 400D with Sigma 17-70/f2.8-4.5

In rural China, it is very common to see ducks being herded just like sheep by a duck shepherd. These ducks are left to roam around the farm or a specific area during the day. In the evening the owner or a member of the family will round the ducks up and lead them home. It is actually quick fun to watch these duck quack their way home.
