When I heard the loudness of their quacking I rushed toward the river. First they flew towards the edge where they landed. Then, they all rushed uphill. I then realized that they were all chasing the female...they were

All for one
When it's love you give
(I'll be a man of good faith.)
Then in love you live.
(I'll make a stand. I won't break.)
I'll be the rock you can build on,
Be there when you're old,
To have and to hold.

When there's love inside
(I swear I'll always be strong.)
Then there's a reason why.
(I'll prove to you we belong.)
I'll be the wal that protects you
From the wind and the rain,
From the hurt and pain.

Let's make it all for one and all for love.
Let the one you hold be the one you want,
The one you need,
'Cause when it's all for one it's one for all.
When there's someone that should know
Then just let your feelings show
And make it all for one and all for love....


Thank you for viewing my duckies :)

This is such a wonderful capture!! Perfect timing and I love your framing!!! Very nice colors and detail! This makes me smile :) TFS

Hello Lurdes,

It's nice to be popular, but I feel that this poor female is in for more than she bargained for. I have heard tales of this happening when the female is nearly killed by the rough behaviour of all the suitors!

That aside, it is a very well taken shot. So much movement is inferred with the head overlapping the border and the flapping wings in the b/g.
Lovely details of the birds.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bravissima Lurdes, fantastic composition with a lot of duks, great colors, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hi Lurdes,

Indeed I recognise this behaviour - sometimes I try to intervene, because it looks more like a gang-rape then anything else, it looks even worse when they are chasing a female in the water, but then I realise it is nature and I have to let them do what and how they do it.

You really caught the action here - a beautiful picture it is, I can hear their noise.
