Artist's Description

You can’t get too much closer to a duckling than a 2-bill stretch. And this duckie was just about as close as two of his rather messy beaks are long. LOL! There’s just no time to get a wash rag when the smashed crackers are on the sidewalk. He (She? Hard for me to tell without all the adult plumage for the computer to ID. LOL!) didn’t even bother to shake the water off before pecking right up to the Panasonic TZ4, that was poised about duckie-butt high on the ground. If the camera had a remote, I’d have backed away and watched the little booger knock it over, screech, and run back to the pond with his/her wings all a-flutter. LMAO!

This was also time for me to make a startling discovery: aside from the feet, ducklings and I have identical legs. My knees are too dark – like his (I’m giving up on the gender joke at this point or my sore fingers will start talking smack to me, the ungrateful appendages!). My shins looks a bit like a washboard too. Everything from his tail to toes looks too small except for those knobby knees.

Momma duck wasn’t claiming Junior as kin so nobody gave a quack about being too close to the strange looking creature with featherless wings, i.e. me. It was every duckie for himself and three of them bumped heads for the biggest crumbs until the pigeons got impatient and wise to the fact they weren’t gonna get a parental beaking from some protective parent. In rather enjoyed this, the bravest of the under-aged ducks in Sacramento, McKinley Park.

PS The full-sized shot of this image is a bit bigger than the duckling was, it was so close to the camera. LOL!


This shot was featured in the group Miniatures and Mammoths. Many thanks to the hosts & members. :-D
