… and I think he may be taking a bath … or preening his feathers … or trying to impress a female duck with his uber masculinity or just abandoning himself to the joy of the day. I took this shot of a drake mallard this afternoon as he spent time repeatedly doing a dive, flipping himself over on his back and in general making huge splashes and he seemed quite pleased with himself. Personally I opt for the just having fun.
A nice day today catching up on projects put aside and they were at that point where it is just plain annoying not having them done and knowing that they do have to be done … joys of procrastination.
Thanks for all the responses to last nights post … there will be more plus how you can help cause those that be reconsider their positions and take human and animal life into account. Fire is natural in the forest, but this is definitely not natural. There are over nine million acres in the forest which comprise the Four Forest Restoration Initiative … converting 10 acre lightning strike fires into 3900 acre fires is not natural … and the unintended consequences are obvious. Time to revisit decisions previously made.
Have a beautiful day … be like our feathered friend and just have some fun.
Whatever else you do or forbear;
Impose upon yourself the task of happiness;
And now and then abandon yourself
To the joy of laughter.
— Max Ehrmann
