Very artistic capture and a great shot, Julie! We don't have many ducks in this part of the Country, so the thumbnail made me think of a Flicker with those wonderful spots! 10 and a favorite!

Thank you so much! I so longed to share it with someone else that had photographed milkweed, or loved it!

I just had this photo made into a 16" x 21" Canvas On Demand "canvas wrap," and it looks even better than the smaller size image. Wow! Truly DOES look like a duck taking flight! Hoping other Weather Underground photographers will rate and comment; I'd love to know your thoughts on this one, please!

About WigglesMom


Born & raised in SW Ohio; have lived in west-central Ohio's Amish & Mennonite wonderful farm country for 27 years. Drove semi trucks for 27 years & have been a property rights / natural resources researcher since 1999. Had *Raffles/Skowronek Arabian horses for 34 years. Enjoyed beyond words the 12+ years that Wiggles Blue Heeler (Aust. cattle dog) graced my life; thankful to God & Wiggles for orchestrating the miracles that led to my rescuing "Good Boy," another blue heeler (pictured) in early March 2011. The greatest blessing in life is getting to live it! I've always loved to take pictures & seem to have a natural eye for it. Thanks to Weather Underground for this chance to display some of my photos!
