They all look good to me. Nice post h2.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.

very nice...but didn't we just have a Ross' on the federal stamp 2 years ago? IMHO they should consider that when picking new stamps in the future...

and another thing...why don't people paint coots? :eek: :toofunny:

all of those are nicely done. personally, i like the coloring of the second place entry. i wouldn't mind hanging a print of any of them on my wall though.

I didn't realize there were three prints on the DU site until I read shrpshtr's post that all were nicely done. I think the second painting looks better as well. Looks more like a photo than a painting! I say that the Drake Shoveler is definately one of the prettiest ducks. Probably a good thing they don't taste as good as a Mallard, otherwise they would be on everyone's "hit-list"!

They look good, but like swamp puppy said, they just had a snow/ross on the stamp a few years ago, and this years stamp looks very similar to the 1978 Merganser stamp. With all the entries, you think they could find something different.
