Today, I leave my current human worries, thoughts, and fears behind. For today, I have decided to be a duck. I’ll fly around the local pond, quacking my cares away. I’ll dip my feet into the cool water and float until I have no thoughts. Back and forth on the pond I’ll go, occasionally tasting the local cuisine. You’ll come visit me and I’ll let you pet me, if you bring me bread crumbs. I’ll even quack you a song. Or better yet, why don’t you join me? We’ll be a flock and fly off into the distance, carefree and happy.
Duck, duck, goose! Yes, become a flock, play and find some geese to have some fun with. 😀
Gorgeous!! Love the blue wings…and those that look like they’re walking on water!! Beautiful shots, Seth!! The water does look soooo inviting!!
I love ducks! These pictures, as with all of your work, are so gorgeous. I can’t get over how blue the wing feathers are on the duck in the first picture. And I’ve always loved photos of rippling water. So, so pretty!
It might be fun to be a duck.
Indeed. Thanks Ellen.
I’ve said this before (and said it in a blog post this year), if I had to be any animal, I would choose to be a duck. Thanks for this great post.
Mallards in our local Park have every need to be scared of humans (well a few) . It always happens at this time of year, there numbers keep falling, enticed by bread they come to feed and a hand suddenly grabs one and you can guess the rest. Catching the ducks seems easier than catching the culprits sadly.
Seriously??? That’s horrible.
Very true…not sure if it is greed motivated or if it is desperation. Not an easy problem t solve
Seth, great images as always–my warped mind keeps playing the Marx Brother’s line, “Why–a duck.” I guess the better answer would be–Why not?
Exactly! 😉 thanks.
love the little mergansers!
Great shot! I think I’ll pass on being a duck………….my feet get cold just looking at you! I’ll stay on the bank with my warm socks and boots and toasty coat. Quack on, Seth.
Wow …. look at those wings ❤ real beauty
DUCKS! love them.
