The Weekly Smile

My husband and I were sitting on a bench in a park yesterday, when a trio of ducks decided to come up from the pond and rest close to us.

It was very hot and two chose to lay down and cool off in the shade of the Weeping Willow

But one of them decided she was in a friendly mood, perhaps thinking we had something for her to eat, (which we didn’t) and ventured closer, 

and closer

and then closer…. until she was an arms length away,

looking at us as we spoke to her, because you know I talk to birds, ducks, any animal, assuming they understand what I am saying. She does look like she understood that I was telling her how pretty she was.

and then after about 5 minutes, she decided it was time to go, and off she went

It made me smile to see her so close up, her markings, small stripes on her head that grew larger down her body. She cocked her head a few times as I spoke which really made me smile. What made you smile this week?

  1. It is cool when animals come up to you like that. I know they are usually looking for handouts, which isn’t good for the animals, but it is still cool. It’s also great that you had your camera when you had your ducky experience – it seems that the one time I leave mine behind is when something like this happens! Great smile 🙂
