… this hen Ring Neck came in for an emergency landing, or she just wanted to have some fun and see how far she could extend her landing run. Normally when ducks come in for a landing they are planting their webbed feet and once they touch down they do everything they can to come to a quick stop. Our friend here looks like she came in very hot, no brakes and is doing everything she can to see how long she can go with every effort to extend it and nothing to halt it … just look how she is leaning forward to keep the weight forward and not push her webbed feet into the water to brake. She appears to be engulfed in a fast moving tube of water and a huge wave is being thrown skyward.
Methinks these creatures we share the planet with may have a sense of humor or adventure, or?
All is well and “Knot Yacht” will be launching on Lake Pleasant again on Friday and hopefully most weeks thereafter.
Have a beautiful day … smile and enjoy this moment and then the next … it is all we have.
