If it quacks like a duck...

THIS is the attention seeking duck. It quacked, and whined, and waddled up and down, and carried on until I took its photo and then it stopped. I'm not kidding. Go figure.
This the annoying, attention seeking duck's friend, who swam quietly without fuss. I took two photos of this one, to reward good behaviour.
This is what my husband insisted was a greater crested grebe.He vowed that it was really rare and we should take a photo of it. So I did. For posterity, in case it became extinct overnight. Funnily enough this 'grebe' had a lot of cousins in Stresa, and on the Borromeo islands.
This is a tree stump on Isola Bella. You can see the attraction, no?
And more of the gardens. You really musn't encourage me.
OK, I'll stop now. Genuine Paris photos next time.

How funny are you, rewarding the 'good' duck with an extra photograph :)
