Photo Friday: Ducks

Ducks. I really don’t know if it’s possible not to smile around ducks.

I remember feeding the ducks at a nearby lake with my parents when I was little. The simple act of tossing a few bread crumbs and watching the ducks flock over was pure joy.

Back in April I began to realize how many people had ducks– when my husband was little he had a pet duck named Football, Havi has Selma, David Copperfield had Webster. Then, of course, there was trucker Joe with his sidekick (sideduck?) Frank.

Today’s photograph comes from a recent jaunt to New Hope, Pennsylvania where ducks were happily skimming the surface of a creek. This particular photo makes me think maybe they were racing.

A duck race. Now, that sounds like fun!

Happy Friday!
