The water is up today, due to recent rains, and I thought this mallard duck looked so sad. He just sat there all alone on the edge of the bank, almost as if he was pouting about the fact he couldn’t get in the water.
Later, he tucked his head in and seemed to be resting. I couldn’t help but wonder how he could relax with flooding water whipping at his feet. You would think he would back up in case a big wave came, but apparently he was not concerned.
a little closer view:
See how the water is already lapping up over the rock wall he is sitting on? Yet he seems rather nonchalant about the whole thing.
