After seeing the finery that the mountain ravens were sporting, Betty unpacked her special duds. Knowing that mating season is close at hand she is sporting an outfit sure to arouse the interest of a certain big boy duck that she has seen paddling around the south end of the lake.

  1. Very cute duck!!! I love the blue bonnet and yellow scarf!!! ~Sophia

    • Thanks, Sophia. It was another foggy day at the lake and all those wild ducks were quacking up a storm. So….I decided to paint one as part of my animal menagerie at the lake.

  2. watch it, manfolk, here comes mama! Great!

  3. Gracefully painted Gretchen,with brilliant colours explicitly communicating her ulterior motives …
    Nice framing,colourful dots and scattered circular thoughts floating all over.

    • Thanks Doda. The scattered circular thoughts are very ducky. I’ve been watching the ducks at the lake for a very long time and never gave them the time of day to be painted. But they are very much a part of the wildlife. They are just simply ducky. Last year 2 white ducks appeared along with the wild ducks. They definitely needed camoulage. First one disappeared….obviously gracing another critter’s belly. The second hung out for quite awhile and she was the loudest and mouthiest feathered thing swimming. Sadly she turned up missing last spring. Silly thing that she was……

  4. Gretchen, this is so lovely. I can totally imagine her walking there, while she just has waved to Alive and Reggie.
