Duck in shallow waters - 8x10 inches
This immature Mallard duck was swimming in the shallow waters of the Inner Harbour of the Cataraqui River off the Doug Fluhrer Park. The City’s plans of expanding Wellington Street through this park has the population divided on the issue because this park is very well used by the locals and also adds green space along the city’s waterfront. This area of the Inner Harbour has shallow water that has a lot of plants showing. To minimize the "busyness" of all these plants around the duck, I used a texture and did some masking.
