Back up!

A leftover from yesterday. I kept telling him he was too close for a proper picture... that he should swim over to the shovelers or the wigeon or heaven-forbid the hoodies and tell them to come half as close as he was willing. No luck though... proper ducks have no interest in my lunch.

Oh, but since he got so close you can see the lovely iridescent green. I bet that's why he wanted to be close--saying, look at me; aren't I just gorgeous?

He is gorgeous, as kgmom said. I like your "too close" picture very much.
