There is a quaint little mountain town not far from my home that I like to frequent that has a lake right in the middle of it. I discovered this little guy at the beginning of the summer. He was so tiny when I first found him and just watching him, his parents, and the other water-fowl by the lake has been a number of peaceful, happy hours for me. I have way to many photograph's of him to even try to count but this one still remains one of my favorites. We affectionately call him Fred.
