Mallard Duck (Anas platyrhynchos)


My sons little friend died this morning, a deep sorrow for him and me. He was called Whiskey, named after a song. R.I.P






And now, the song.

  2. Hi Bob,

    in memory of the friend a good choosen song. The pictures are great shots, especially the shaking head of the duck, where the water drops are genial to see.

  4. That song is responsible for many a child.
    I'm so sorry a young boy had to die.
    When the natural order of things breaks down it is always harder to bear.

  16. So sorry about Whiskey, the ways of life and death are sometimes very difficult. As for the photos, I especially love the last one mostly because you see the color on the wings that you rarely if ever see!
