I wish that I could tell you more about this duck. I wish that I could fill in the background details about where I was when I saw this duck, and what inspired me to take a picture of it. Alas, all of that minutiae has been lost to me in the time since I took this picture. None of the pictures around it in the set give any clues, other than the fact that it was probably shot down at The Forks. Since it is a shot that I took in the middle of that "picture a day" regimen I was following at the time, I am guessing that I had planned to hold it in reserve in case I got no other good pictures that day. Fortunately, I also got a good picture of an angry-looking person handing a balloon frog to a little girl, so the duck never got called up for duty.
