Baby duck in one of the fountains of Tuileries Garden, Paris

The Tuileries Garden is a public garden located between the Louvre Museum and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris.


Created by Catherine de Medicis as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was first opened to the public in 1667, and became a public park after the French Revolution. In the 19th and 20th century, it was the place where Parisians celebrated, met, promenaded, and relaxed.


Once in while you can see ducks bathing in those fountains. This day i was lucky and i shot a baby one :)
