Double duck

Posted by
L'explorateur (Vancouver, Canada) on 20 December 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

I really like this duck! I would keep her at home :) She lives around the ponds between Kits Beach and Granville Island. There is a view of downtown Vancouver, beautiful Stanley Park, the mountains, the ocean at west...a very lucky and beautiful duck!

No post processing for this image, as usual. :)

Sorry that I won't be able to reply to your comments today. Talk to you tomorrow! :)

cool pic, cool reflection! i like ducks, too! watching and photographing them is always fun! btw, this one's a HE! females, as opposed to the human race, are much less conspicuous ... ;-))
