Sights like these beautiful images prove to me there is a creator/artist behind them.! The ducklings have a scary start as they leap from their tall tree homes. Voted.

Beautiful, Jay. They truly do look like painted wooden ducks.
edwina beaumont04-Dec-2008 08:51
a gorgeous picture, especially the male. strangly enough we have one on a local lake at the moment in very good plumage and it is getting all the local birders excited. here it is most probably an escape from a wildfowl collection, but lovely to see
