Does she have legs? I'm almost afraid to ask, knowing the lengths you go to for the right shot!
Har har, the word verification is "yngx hogs"!

You said "just a duck" but I say "a really nice one" :)

There is no such thing as "just a duck." All ducks are totally wicked. If it was up to me, everyone would have pet ducks instead of those stupid little dogs that bark at absolutely everything.

Proud, home-loving, ambitious and a good mother, I’m sure. Walks, runs, swims, flies to great purpose . . never ‘just a duck’ but sure a nice little pic.

Interesting that in the Duck world the male is prettier than the female !

Excellent - a perfect example of textural interplay. The DoF choice 'floats' the duck on that field of stones...
