I took this photo of this beautiful duck, iridescent in the morning sun as I was having a look at the progress on our new bridge at Walton on Thames
As he wandered around the river bank he reminded me of one of my favourite children’s books, ‘Duck is Dirty’ by Satoshi Kitamura (きたむら さとし)
Duck is Dirty by Satoshi Kitamura
The book starts off with the line… Duck is going for a walk…

Wow, his colors are really gorgeous, especially that green! And it’s adorable that you’ve connected it to that children’s book. 🙂
I loved reading that book to my girls, it’s my favourite of his. The Duck looked exactly like his cartoon as he waddled around the riverbank for me
Beautiful photographs Barbara. The vibrance and clarity is wonderful x
Thank you 🙂 The ducks looked stunning with the low morning sun on them, I was thrilled with the photos as they captured the colours brilliantly
They are lovely. The clarity and colours are really lovely.
Thanks 🙂 I’m really happy with them too. The duck looked like he wanted to be photographed, he stood still while I walked around him looking for the right angles. Maybe he knew how great he looked in that light!
I wish my cat were so photogenic! Instead she seems to have sixth sense for when I’m going to take a picture and always moves at just the wrong time, haha.
Lol, Cats are very good at doing something adorable right up to the point that you press click on the camera. Then they get bored and walk off. My cat & dog are both black so almost impossible to photograph indoors, and my cat is not keen on getting her feet wet so don’t expect to find any photos of her on here till next summer at the earliest! 🙂
You did a fantastic job to get these shots, Barbara. Can’t he “posed” for you. His colors are brilliant.

I’m so impressed with how they turned out, and I was just using my compact camera. Shows how good it is 🙂 Can’t wait for Tuesday !!!
I hope you are not on cooking duty on Tuesday, since you might be out testing a new toy!
I am on supervisory light duties only, Charlotte has been doing brilliant dinners recently so I’m moving into kitchen management
Stunning is right! Wonderful photography.
Thank you 🙂 I’m really happy with them
