AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

I particularly like the reflection of his eye!

Woody said...

Yes, the reflection in the eye caught my attention, too. Nice!

Dimple said...

Beautiful shot! I'm glad Red Pat and Woody noticed the reflected eye; I would have missed it, otherwise, and it would have been a loss!

Great reflection picture, beautiful!

Dianne said...

the duck is so sweet
I love that his eye is reflected so clearly

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Ducks are the perfect animal for reflections... first, they are often in the water, and second, the graceful sway of their necks can almost render a heart-shape reflection.

I love the green plants on the surface which interrupt the total reflection.
