Odd One Out

By Len1950
Walking along Lancaster canal yesterday and this duckling stood out like a beacon, it's seven siblings were the normal mottled colour, probably not everyone's cup of tea but i thought it looked "kinda" cute with a nice reflection.
Thanks to everyone for the lovely response to the Snipe upload, very much appreciated. Len
