Nature making art No. 5



In my world, it is often Nature, rather than Man, that makes the most beautiful art.

The other day, it seemed to me that this bright-eyed mallard, a resident of Cannobio's Porto Nuovo, couldn't resist stirring up the colours of the water and the reflected boat that so closely mirror his own plumage.

The boat and the plumage match! What a gorgeous shot.

What a fabulous picture. I love the way it looks as if he's creating the bright green behind him as he swims through the water - spreading ducky happiness!

You are so correct, Louise. There is no better art than what I call "God's paintbrush" and this is a perfect example. What an amazing photo!

I can't thank you enough for taking the time to wish my grandmother a happy birthday. Thank you, thank you, thank you - all the way from Italy? She loved it...
