Ooops! Did I quack too loudly?

I spent the better part of today at the Great British Duck Race at Hampton Court. The weather wasn't that great at first but as some of you would know, English weather is not something you can predict, the sun started to shine really hard. I didn't wait long enough to see which duck won but I did get a few images that I quite like. I'll post two tomorrow and the day after.

Have a great week guys.

You must explain the little blue ones. Around here only the big yellow ones are used. I would like to have some little blue ones. I too, can't wait for tomorrow's.

Lol...I love this. Yes, it looks like it quaked too loudly...why else would the baby ducks die?
I count only four blue duck swimming upright - are all the others presumed drowned?! Great pic! H.
