In Paris, even ducks like to sunbathe along the Seine.  Last week, they finally got a very hot day so tout Paris came out to catch some rays.  In town for a mini-break, I got to test my new travel camera and practiced some optical long shots with this lone canard on a wall.  Now, my experience of ducks is they don’t like it all that hot– mine generally hide under the shrubs when the going gets really sticky.   This young male, however, seemed to prefer “baking” on the stones far above the water– un vrai Parisien, non?



Baking, not roasting.
