Did you know that ducks mate for life? And look at this cute couple. Growing up I always thought that the male ducks were more beautiful than the females, but I don't know if I agree any more.

Mother ducks are so modest, they remind me of Marilla from Anne of Green Gables. They wear brown outwardly that is plain and understated, however it has a lot of texture to it. It's very detailed (and difficult to paint) however when you look closer there are hidden feathers that are beautiful vibrant blue, and only shown as a brooch. Anne lied about how Marilla's brooch got lost, saying it fell into the Lake of Shining Waters.

My daughter likes to say that this mother duck wants a hug, but the daddy duck doesn't want to hug her.
