Duck (And Cover) Friday Flash 55




Worry, jogging, what to do–ducks ahead, my memory jogged to daughter in ER (years ago) with duck-bitten thumb–those bills tough on cracker=holding digits–till digital-fixation overcomes hesitation; I dumbly pull out smartphone like a shield.

Click-click. Ducks, luckily camera-shy, fly.  Good thing they are not paparazzi-loving bears.


Here’s some 55 tufts of Friday fluff (belated) for my friend the G-Man, Mr. Know-it-all.  Enjoy the weekend.  Don’t get any duck bites!!!!!

And if you’ve got a mo, check out my books!  Poetry, GOING ON SOMEWHERE, (by Karin Gustafson, illustrated by Diana Barco). 1 Mississippi -counting book for lovers of rivers, light and pachyderms, or Nose Dive, a very fun novel that is perfect for a pool or beachside escape.  Nose Dive is available on Kindle for just 99 cents!

      No, no. That was years ago. I meant to say that I get a bit nervous when I see them because of that, but then my urge to take pictures takes over. I don’t think I said it very well! Ha! No, these were perfectly innocent ducks. But I’m in DC so they may be related to the ones that chased you! k.

    My Grandpa used to say this about Geese and Ducks…
    …”All they do is Eat, Shit, and squak”!!!
    Loved your Poultry 55 Karin…
    Ya know I was getting a bit worried about you.
    Better late than never…:P:P:P
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

    You WIN! a million and one uses for the smartphone. You were definitely outnumbered. I love this trail along the water. I also enjoy the stop action third shot. And in the first, the stones and bridges are comforting next to the unpredictable ducks.

    ducks are animals, innocent, happy weekend.

I'd love to hear from you!
