My origami calendar

I folded the mother duck out of trace paper around the time I saw ducklings on the way to work. I can’t remember how big the paper was; I believe 13×13mm. The two little ducklings in the center were folded from 6×6mm pieces of trace paper while the little one at the back was folded from a 5×5mm piece of trace paper.

I know mother duck is just behind the 4cm mark, but the duckling at the back is in front of the 1cm mark, hence the duck family is a 3cm spread ^ _ ^

Taken with an Olympus FE-220 (on super macro mode) on top of a box in my room.

    Amazing work. I don’t know how you do it so intrique are the details.

  • Thank you. I wish I wasn’t in a stressed state now, then I could’ve made this better and take more time on it. I had a great urge to do it anyhow; and I needed a break.

    Morning Mui-Ling – if this is the version you’re not so happy with, looking forward to the next version….actually I’m pretty sure I like it the way it is, but I know how it feels when something isn’t quite the way you want it.

  • I’m glad you like it as it is. It is certainly very difficult to get that ideal look, and I’m not the best photographer – and even if I do a newer one that I like, well I don’t know if others would feel the same. Thanks for the fav :D

    Oh, i think it’s wonderful, wonderful Mui-Ling…knowing the story behind the ducks n all….
    I have such affection for you and all that you do….i love this little duck family,
    absolutely sweet and adorable!

  • Thanks Karin! It’s great that you’ve been up to date with my duckling adventures; I think knowing about those makes this more enjoyable.
