    Is he standing on one leg!? I love these ducks so much, they have beautiful shades of brown and green. I like this shot, the light in the background is really nice and he looks really proud!

  • I believe he was… they do that, these strange creatures. Thanks though, I just wish his neck and head were properly exposed, but wasn’t quite possible, and I’m unable to bend the sun to my will… for now!
