Black Ducks by Gerald W. Putt
Fred's Anecdotal Note
The river otter is an excellent swimmer and has the reputation of being fun-loving and playful. In this handpainted MILFORD Cachet, one cruises beneath the surface as a Black Duck swims above. Note the variations of color above and below the water such as the reed and the duck's feathers. The "cross-section" view makes it an
interesting addition to the 1996 Wildlife Series.
A Harrisburg postmark ties the $5.50 Duck Stamp to the cover and only 150 were produced.
