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.

'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.
