Prize Ducks

The annual Yass Show and Rodeo was on this weekend and one of my favourite things about the event is the juxtaposition of sideshow alley with the agricultural exhibits. One is so loud and disposable — from pink fairyfloss to the gleeful screams of teenagers on rides. While the other is earthy and antiquated — the smell of manure blended with primped and preened animals.

I love these Bali ducks. The pom-pom crest is a natural feature of the breed, but they look like they've spent an afternoon having their hair done at a salon!
