Theme - Water

This theme appears to be a good omen. Since Damon emailed and mentioned that we should begin looking around for water it has begun to rain! Thanks for the theme, and let's hope all this water breaks our terrible drought!

Beautiful reflections and a great post for the theme.
One small nitpick - I'd play around with cropping the duck out of the center for a more interesting composition.

just as water supports the duck, so it is that water supports our lives...

i like the shimmering effect of the water by the yellowish reflections!

hope the water situation improves DownUnder for you, your loved ones and all in Australia...

The water almost looks like colored glass -- the occasional blue sets off the yellow very nicely.
