I simply cannot help but smile when I see the posterior of a duck as it bobs its head into the water in search of food. It's one of the cutest things in nature, I think.
The ducks at a local park are pretty friendly when I approach them in my kayak, so I decided to try to sketch them as they grabbed a snack the other day. I must say, you have to be quick when sketching bobbing ducks! (I added the watercolor later.)
I take it as a sign of trust that they'll be so vulnerable when I'm so close. After all, friends are supposed to trust each other, right?
I bet they never dreamed I'd sketch their tushes while their heads were down!
