Default Falling Water- Duck faucet

I am thinking of hiring this Northern Shoveler duck to stand in my front yard and act as a fountain. Much better than a "Lawn Jockey", don't you think?

Lovely stop action. Nice saturation in the colors, not overheated.

That's just too funny! I agree, it would work well as a lawn fountain. The colors are quite spectacular.
