Mr & Mrs out for a walk.... I took this one by the river in the early spring. I am especially happy about the little pearls of water still on the head of Mr Duck.
Love the tones, I was very lucku that the birds were down by the water and the grass on the bank on the other side was green, it made for a perfect tone in the photo.
The ducks are really mallards, a bird I have always been mesmerised by, and especially the male - the green head is so stunningly beautiful. A friend of the family, when growing up, had a stuffed mallard, and I'd go up and pet the little mallard on the head, carefully, carefully. Bizarre, really, to have stuffed animals in the house, but for me as a kid it was absolutely fascinating.
The river by the way; It's not really a real river, it is more of a stream, it is the Düssel, the stream that gave Düsseldorf (the village by Düssel) its name...
