Today's award goes to a naive bird-watcher in Perth, Australia.
A Mandurah woman's post this week on a popular Perth Facebook page has drawn widespread interest - and no shortage of hilarity - after she thought she'd spotted a "black duck" on a grassed area near a lake.
On closer inspection it turned out to be a large sex toy.
There's more at the link, including a picture of the offending 'duck' and a call for suggestions by the newspaper for appropriate captions. I'm sure that literary- and photographically-minded readers like mine can help them out!
