LOL good point and I know you have much experience with children who won't pose :) Appreciate your visit, Minnie!

Parents are clipped, captive, located at an in-town cemetery.

I cropped this in to see if I could and it still works! I love the pose, it's real and shows the duckling at an intimate moment. So cute! S-

Beautiful work, Linda. I would venture to think that ugliness is in the eye of the beholder. The parents seem not to mind the appearance at all.
