SO, does the duckling on the right spoil the family snap? Perhaps not.
This picture was taken as a press picture to welcome the arrival of springtime. The photograph was taken at Pennywell Farm in Buckfastleigh.
A shot like this needs a good deal of luck but some could say that the duckling on the right brought a small amount of bad luck as he is the only one facing the wrong way.
The shape of the ducklings curling down from right to left was very fortunate; the plan was to have them sat and facing the camera but the awkward duckling, far right, jumped off the log, ran around the back and jumped back on facing the wrong way, allowing just two seconds for the picture, then they all jumped off!
