So cute and colourful, nice subject for a little painting.

O my word, what a beautiful photograph of a stunning little duckling. You're right Mick, its beak looks as though it's a piece of amber. The photograph's so clear that you can see the softness of its feathers.
Thank you Dave - producing photos like this must take some expertise. I never progressed from the little holiday snaps of the children, usually with their heads 'chopped off'!

When I first looked at it I thought this is one from the world famous Dave Oy but well snapped David.

Great photo David, I’ve been trying for a while to get a photo of one of these little critters but didn’t come up with anything anywhere as good as this one.

Lovely photo David, beautiful little duckling.

Comment by: David on 15th August 2020 at 23:15

Thanks all. I was holding the camera over the side of the towpath to get as low an angle as I could. It took a few attempts to get an ok shot. Those baby ducks move really fast! ????

Thanks Mick, if you don't mind I would like to send the photo to my friend in Oz. My trip there has been cancelled. Just a little reminder of St Pat's.

Comment by: Mick on 16th August 2020 at 13:56

Will one be enough, because Ive got a few more if you want them Veronica.

Comment by: Veronica on 16th August 2020 at 15:10

Yes that would be nice Mick... if they're on PAD just tell me the dates. Thank you, I think she would like to see them.

Comment by: Mick on 16th August 2020 at 18:11
