Almost a duck's eye view of another duck. A fine and humorous image.

@Michael Skorulski: That was a really funny scene: when we entered the place many ducks came to us, obviously waiting for some food. When they saw that we had nothing to offer, their interest in us quickly weakened. The duck on the picture spotted a raven that was flying above us.

@Veronelle: One of many that suddenly surrounded us! :-)

Laurie from New Jersey, United States

So cute! The way her head is cocked it looks like she just thought of a brilliant idea and is thinking..."hmmm...that just might work".

@Laurie: Maybe! :-) She raised her head when a raven flying above us was croaking. I really would like to know what she was thinking in that moment!

She's got her eye on you I can see :)
Great point of view and I get a kick out of those duck legs up ahead in the frame!

@bluechameleon: Thanks! But the legs in the background belong to a black swan, there were quite a lot of ducks, swans, and geese that tried to get some food from us. :)

@MaryB: Ducks in Düsseldorf never lost their humor. :-)

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

Looks to me like you tried to pull a fast one, and he's not buying it.

@Twelvebit: Yes, they are clever little beasts, y'know...

Tracey from White Hall, United States

You are hysterical! He is totally keen on sneaking up on this one! Great colors!
