  5. She is proud of her purple feather . . . wonderful capture!

  16. I’ve once seen a flash of purple on a female , this is wonderful, I love the reflection and the swirls in the water.

  17. I’m with Ellen…the ripples in the water really add a nice dimension to this portrait. Mrs Duck is quite lovely!
