Nice job with the ducklings who appear to be imitating the beautiful lily by sitting atop the green goo.
All the best,

Quick quick, change "queck queck" to quack quack! I like the inclusion of the lotus flower top left, The grey ducks stand out well against the green bg. Tfs!

It will be another long holiday, and seems you have prepared for the next . .
Great shot for this two little ducks . . Where are their parent? . .
Well composed . .

I like the way the coots are placed in the lr corner, and the water lily in the ul corner. The lack of water (well, it's all covered) makes a nice "backdrop".
Well done. TFS
Next May we'll be visiting Athens, so... no cruise for us.

Coot...well for me they do look like ducklings :)
Nice looking babies, and with that composition with water lily adds more beautiful view.
Looks like they are sitting on bunch of those lily stems. I like the fresh colors here.
Again nicely done nature shot...and good luck for their lives.
ps: Cruize..hmm..seems pretty temptation. Will see how it works out.

first of all, this is a lovely scene!
Great colours and details on a busy little nest!
Secondly -- I might not be able to come with you on a cruise next year, but it is a great idea for a few years further!

This is a cute image with well rendered colors and details! Bravo! Annie

Good timing John!
The duck just opens his mouth to cry "John !".
Good colors and lots of details. Creative border too.
p.s.: op mijn monitor (zo'n ouwe) ziet ie er uit alsof ie wat te scherp is gemaakt. Kan dat kloppen?, of moet ik gewoon m'n lenzen effe schoonmaken? :-)

Duck Soup. Very cute, John. You forgot to mention that humans eat ducks too!
Could you translate the title into english? Are the quacking in dutch?

100% pleasure to see.
Al this ''Kroos'' on the surface makes it look like a carpet of green. Yes about the Pike(Snoek) I once saw it with my own eyes, a big fish mouth with teeth and 'flops' away the little ducky was.
Cruisse..great Idea John, will think about it
(would be fun!)

Nice capture and perfect compo with birds and greenery. I can imagine the image a touch (but only a touch) darker, but probably it's a kind of personal taste. Good job.
About the idea: absolutely great, but except for Jens who's so rich to be able to pay for the whole? :)
Tfs both the image and the story / idea, take care, László
