My name is Natacha and I am an 18 years old amateur photographer living on a farm in Southern France. I love to combine my two main passions - animals and photography - in one.

My newest photography series is about the friendship between my dog and my duck. Vendetta, the dog, is an old German Shepherd female. And Lemony is an Indian Runner Duck.

Vendetta is such a sweet and friendly dog with everyone and every animal that when Lemony arrived in our home as a duckling in June 2018, I hadn't any apprehension of putting them together. To my surprise, Lemony was absolutely not afraid and started to follow Vendetta everywhere.

Vendetta is completely in love with water so naturally, I began to take Lemony together with us to the lake, and then even to the woods and the city.

It's really important for me to show this special bond because I truly hope that this will help people to see ducks in a different way - not only as "foie gras" or something but as the sensitive animals they are.

Still, I've got a lot of projects and shooting ideas with them but here are some shots that I wish you to show. I hope you will enjoy them!

Update: I have to say that the reactions on my first post really touched my heart. As I didn’t know that it could make people happier this way (guess I was expecting more reactions like: “Ok, cool. A duck and a dog. Now let us fight about politics”). So, thank you so much from the heart!

So the whiteish pidgeon from that other photo is actually part of the gang. It makes it even more obvious that the duck and the dog match each other perfectly, well, apart from a few anatomical differences ...

I can fly, too, if I want to! At the very least the distance between bench and ground.

Thank you so much Natacha. Human beings have a lot to learn from animals. "All beings seek for happiness; so let your compassion extend itself to all." - Mahavamsa
