Retiro's Crystal Palace with Duck...


Walking in the the Retiro park the last week end I couldn't resit to photograph this fellow... At first I thought it was interested in the camera but then I realize that it was waiting for some food and as I didn't have any,it just left... :-)

I remember you from earlier visits a long time ago. It must have been in 2006 or early 2007. You still have beautiful pictures and this duck is one of them. I also like the colours on the Arab house.

The duck seems awesome, smiling and... rather fat. He must be yummy !
I like the light and smart crystal palace...

(Hpy is right, you were already here on my blog in the past and then, like the bird, you disapeared)

He's definitely showing you his best side. Very nicely taken with the soft focus backdrop.

eh eh, fortunately your camera isn't edible ! I like the shot, the shallow dof is perfect. You can concentrate on the..fellow but also admire the beautiful building on the background. What is it?

Lovely pic! Next time bring bread for the duckies - and a friend to feed them, that usually makes for great photo ops...;)
