__What an sight: two clouds set aglow by the setting sun, and between them... the quater moon. Distance is nothing... when conquered by sight or imagination.

Good one Frank! But, what is that bird amoung the ducks? _m

Magyar: the bird in the middle is in fact a duck called the Mandarin. It's closely related to the North American Wood duck. Click on the following URL for details:

All the best, Frank...

This is stunning, bravo Frank, such a beautiful feeling here :)

Putting the Mandarin duck in the center sets the focal point of the picture and the poem, good one.

Analyzing text and photo I see some geometric parts reminding of a quarter moon. It's estonishing: among ducks I can see quarter moons. That's a very subtle composition.

This is a great shot Frank - that Mandarin is beautiful! Love the subtle connection between photo and words.

Thank you Frank... !
__This proves I'm never too old to learn. Here, mostly mallards, and the wood ducks rare. And I, silly that I am, thought all ducks had webbed feet. Sincerly, _m
