I know it's a strange title for this. But....I keep seeing a little baby duck head in the water. There isn't, so it's still Sunday here and that seems Silly. Anyway, this is Nile Creek, 2 secs from our house and it is so full of salmon heading up stream to spawn.
Do you see the baby duck? Or is something wrong with me?

Nope! Much clearer than that. I can't believe no one sees it first thing.

I see another bird's head, beak pointing in the same direction as the fish - profile shot. Right in the middle and two-thirds of the way down.

If you'd enabled Mods I could've drawn a line around the head to show you which one I see Grin

Duck aside, these are superb shots of the salmon!
