PHOTOGRAPHERS AND POETS

'OFF TO SCHOOL'


These two photos were taken in the canal and so they are in salt water and swimming in a very rough current yet they seem to navigate much better than some boaters. I frequently see eiderdown ducks 'hangin out' with these ducks in the colder 
weather.  My haiku is below.

  1. Sometimes I wish I could live near the sea eve though I don't like water very much. But it gives me a sort of relaxation when I walk on the sand with water splashing over my feet, :)

  8. Love the ducks, we have a pond near us, and the ducks cross the road to the stream on the other side. They have become such a feature that the council has put up a warning ducks crossing road sign. Thanks for visiting and kind comments.
