    He looks adorable, he is so beautifully different. Wilbur is such a good duck name it suits him very well. Glad he doesn’t swim upside down though 🙂

      LOL! I’m glad I wasn’t drinking anything when I read your last line. I burst out laughing so hard that anything in my mouth would have ended up on my keyboard and computer screen! Thank you for your kind and funny comment, Ute. They brightened an already-sunny morning.

    Talk about feeling like a ‘duck out of water’ – except this little guy is in the water! 😉
