Artist's Description

I was in the Japanese Garden at my local botanical garden when I heard the flutter of wings and a splash. I turned to see that Mr. and Mrs. Mallard had landed on the small koi pond. I know this pair from last year and before. Come nesting season, and they leave the big lake to take up residence in what becomes their private spot in the koi pond. They have even been known to visit the nearby gift shop. :) (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 81mm, f/6.3, 1/250 sec., ISO 200, open shade, handheld) I used three subtle texture layers (Clair Obscur, Deco Verte, and Netherlandish) from Leslie Nicole’s French Kiss Textures to de-emphasize the background around the duck.
