Mr & Mrs Duck

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...

Home to Hönö

On the way to Hönö, the island Photo taken in Sweden, not where my home is, but where it smells familiar from salt and where the seagulls...
