As part of the Ducks in a Row Series (apparently) I had taken this photo of a mallard drake just kind of strutting his stuff among the flock. He has a look of pride that I found to be irresistible. A Mr Look at Me Now –kind of duck strut. Standing tall and proud.
What I found to be quite amusing was settling on a title for this - Do the Duck Strut, Dapper Drake, Mr Handsome, Duck Strut, Dapper Drake Dabbler.
Mallards are a dabbler ducks after all!
And here is likely why I love ducks. My Mother used to sign this song to me as a child... and I have sung it with my children! Very happy memories... my daughters added the quacking :)
Little ducky dawdle
Went wading in a puddle
Went wading in a puddle so small - says he it does not matter
How much I splash and splatter
For I’m just a duckie after all
