The Little Yellow Duckies sense winter approaching. It it alsmost time to head south for the winter. "How about a change from the usual routine?" asks one Little Yellow Ducky. "Like what?" the others ask. "We could walk this year, rather than fly" he says. "That might be a nice change" says another Little Yellow Ducky. "We'd see the countryside in a whole new perscpective" says one more Little Yellow Ducky. So the Little Yellow Duckies start to walk off over the sand dunes and South for the winter.

I'm glad that you, unlike so many, choose a face-on approach. It makes the entry into the photo so much more rewarding. Nice shallow dof.

Ducky challenge was two weeks ago. Nicely done, if this was a Ducky challenge, but it's not. :-(

I don't know? On my computer it looks like there kinda headed west: which would make no sense at all. Nice focus!

The DOF is good if not a little shallow. I'd prefer to see more blue in the background rather than more "bland" brown. I also wonder if this wouldn't have been a better composition if the ducks were heading from left to right instead of right to left? If you had them, some road signs or something to link it to the challenge more would have been good.
