Here's a duck that needs no introduction. Mostly because I forgot to get her name. And I figure if we're going to spread rumor and innuendo about her we might as well get the name right lest we cast aspersions on the wrong duck. So while I would like to tell you some of the things she has done, I cannot. But there were the kind of things that would get your flight feathers revoked in proper duck society.

Enjoy and your comments welcomed.

Whatever her name may be, you've snapped a beautiful photo Wendell. I like how the light plays on her head, neck and weeds. Bravo!

The thing that goes the farthest, towards making life worthwhile, it costs the least and does the most, is just a pleasant smile.

Its a beauty Wendell.
Shame her secrets can not be revealed - but maybe for the best
as she sounds a bit of a flighty bird :)

Would you care to enter this in the B & W Challenge ? It would be a fine addition.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Wendell, you are proceeding completely in conformity with all the rules of SOS. Telling a little, but not everything, making public curious and inquisitive. Origin of gossip:)
Have you thought about your nick? SAW is taken by a lady named Pat, so please think a little harder:)

Very unique looking photo and I do like the colour tones you applied to this amazing capture with lovely sharp light in just the right areas of this photo as well.

I can tell by the look in her eye, Wendell, that she had rather avoid the Paparazzi. Of course stars have to really try hard keep their names out of the tabloids. But you are one of the better photographers who would keep from smearing a little ducky. Good detail in your image.

Life's moments are sweet. I just want to capture all that I can of them.

This is terrific, really like your comments. Seems as though she also read them and is thinking about how to respond. Wonderful capture, close up makes this special, composition,etc. you know, all fantastic.
