I love these little chaps, simply because many consider them to be quite ugly, but I consider them to be rather distinguished.

Excellent detail on this duck Ann, a friend of my Sons has one as a pet, it follows his children around like a dog.

I think he will get a fright when he looks in the mirror Ann.
That must have been some heavy night he had of it !!
Good shot.
And enjoy your holiday.

This duck would probably ' quack ' for this weather to continue for ever Ann. !!!Grin Now that he has had his five minutes in the spotlight perhaps he will join us all in wishing you a happy week.
