I have spent most of last week and the weekend painting Christmas trees and decorations, so much so that I have an aching hand. I finished the project this afternoon which left time for a walk down the canal. We spotted a mother mallard and her twelve ducklings, now of course I did not have time to paint them, so here is one I did earlier. Maybe the same mummy duck, or more probably one of the ducklings has matured to become a mummy herself?
