Unbelievably beautiful Kathy! You have done it once again. This one deserves to be a POTD and a top prize winner. #10315925

Agree with Carol, completely, Kathy! A superb capture! The faces in the Crown Fountains are residents or visitors to Chicago. The "faces" were recently changed. There are 10 to 15 "faces" between the 2 fountains. Every so often, "they" open their mouths, and water sprays out!! Its a very unique and fun spot! #10315972

Absolutely stunning capture Kathy. I don't believe I've ever seen a more colorful duck, another Gold winner on the horizon. #10316277

Another fav, Kathy! Superb capture of this colorful duck - one that I have never seen in person, but would love to. The clarity and detail is exceptional, and the colors are hard to believe. #10317586
