A Duck Story

A girl-duck and a boy-duck are swimming leisurely on my pool, which is yet to be prepared for summer...


This way... That way...


...beauty in the mirror of the dark water...


Suddenly, a rival arrives...


The girl-duck promptly retreats to the safety of the lily of the valley yet to bloom... She waits... Do I detect a mischievous sparkle in her eye?


The boys have a game of war to play... Notice how the water around them tells their tale...


They both fly away. Then, after a while, one comes back. Peace has returned at last... Which one is he? I think it's the rival who's gone...


So beautiful, regardless...


By the way, Chick with a Quill turns eight today... :-)

I thought maybe the two males flew off together and lived happily ever after. :)

Congrats on turning 8 today! We have a bayou that runs by our blood center, and lovely ducks such as these swim by every day. It is peaceful to get out of the car and see a family of them gliding down the bayou. :-)

I am sorry I just can't top Charles comment. The great American issue of the moment.
