  8. Duck! No, no-- just kidding. Wonderful pictures. While the colors are different, his hood reminds me a little of wood ducks and mandarins somehow.

  10. Bob - as has already been said, the feather pattern on this duck is mind-boggling. He is certainly dressed up for the opera, or a Broadway show or whatever it is that ducks do for a "hot date".
