I loved the original but this one pops even more! Fantastic job Pam!! #888808

Pamela K November 03, 2004

Thank you Tammy, Barbara, and Diane!!

Tammy: I've always felt that Wood Duck's are sort of surreal looking even in real life!

Diane: I liked the original, too, but I was really glad that John showed me what it would look like with a slightly bluer background!
