[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
To join the Flight theme I made this photo which, in reality, orginated from five different photos: The yellow ducks are actually always the same one taken at the same time in three different shots.
The blue duck was also photographed on the same occasion at the same spot. And, finally, the pigeon was photographed in Leiria. I used it to "sign" the photo.
Do you think there are too many ducks here?

As usual, I always like to dedicate a song for most of my photos :) ...

...Dream girl lets take a flight ,
Far away to a paradise.
Dream girl lets take a ride,
Destination rainbow skys.
Dream girl lets kiss and hug,
On a beach with white sand and all white doves.
Dream girl lets cuddle up.
Somewhere, where ever and make sweet love....

Thank you for visiting.
A nice weekend to all and a Happy Easter

PS: Concerning the colors and other characteristics of this photo; I'm not able to see how they came out because I have a new computer (the old one was giving me problems) and the image from here is very pale.
