  2. I always liked the determined way of ducklings paddling, as if they would sink if they stopped 🙂 Nice shots.

  6. So cute!

    Also, Mrs. Otherduck is a PERFECT name for a character in a children’s book. It’s so perfect, I almost want to quit my writing I am otherwise doing to write said book!
