Motorboat Mallards

mallardsFriends, this image did not need much in the way of photoshop and i loved the wake behind and ahead of the birds.  They are swimming very fast after a fellow mallard who got some bread from people feeding the ducks.  Reminds me of the saying, “be like a duck, calm on the outside and paddling like mad under the water”  My father always thought that was a wise saying and as i was a wall flower when i was growing up, I took faith that the paddling would get me where I needed to go.  so I am still paddling.  til Tomorrow MJ

  1. great photo 🙂 and I like the saying as well.

  2. I am so blessed to live in an apartment complex with 3 huge ponds, full of mallard ducks and Canadian geese. There are squirrels everywhere as well as Stellar Jays and birds of prey. They’re like my own family here. Thanks for posting & telling us your story. 🙂
