Brown Duck

I just took this photo because I really liked the colors on this duck.

May I borrow your duck to use on my Rinkly Rimes blog page? I'd like to reprint this little poem. I'll give you due credit, of course.


'I like the colours'. Yes, you said it.
It hadn't loaded when I read it.
As the picture moved on down
I was surprised to see just brown!
I had expected something bright,
Some yellow, red or green delight,
Something to flash and flare and flurry,
Something to grab me in a hurry.
Something to jangle and distract,
Something vivid, action-packed.
You mentioned 'colour', I thought 'paint',
Something wild, without restraint.
Then, when I saw this little fellow,
With his feathers mild and mellow,
With that gentle, autumn brown,
With that snowy touch of down,
I thought 'subtle' and I knew
I liked his colours as much as you.

A beautiful duck to be sure. I love the colors.

ALso, I don't know if you are interested or not or if you have ever seen a Pileated Woodpecker, but I posted one on My Birds Blog this morning. It is our largest woodpecker and this is the first one I have seen here in 46 years.

I've never seen one quite like that. This is a really, really good shot.
