My Two Drakes

A  L  O  H  A !
“I almost wish we were butterflies 
and liv'd but three summer days - 
three such days with you 
I could fill with more delight 
than fifty common years 
could ever contain.” 
               John Keats

 " Vexed sailors 
cursed the rain, for 
which poor shepherds 
prayed in vain.
        Edmund Waller

“When the Sun of compassion 
arises darkness evaporates 
and the singing birds 
come from nowhere.” 
            Amit Ray

Nature makes her 
own arrangements.
These three are 
ever seen together,
grooming, drinking, 
sleeping [often 
on my lawn] 
in the shady 
afternoon sun.
Isn't that wonderful!

Thank YOU

Love your drakes - and the duck is a charmer too. Feathered enchantment all of them.

Hello, they must love your place and have made it their home now. Cute shots of the three Mallards. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

William Kendall said...

That's entirely different!

I did not know that mallards practiced polyandry... Your blog is so educational.

Since John Keats lived in the 17th century, he can take credit for the updated version of his quote. One man's trash is another man's treasure.
