Dive Like A Duck

Canada
March 17, 2016 7:08am CST
Don't you wish you could sit on water like a duck does? Who needs a boat if you have a substance all over your clothing that keeps you afloat. The duck above was showing off his tail feathers. I wonder if in duck speak that is “giving me the duck finger”. Probably not... they don't have fingers. That flotation device they are born with must cause frustration when trying to catch fish under them. I have seen ducks dive under the water but it must be hard work when your body wants to pop right back up. If I was a duck, like this one, I would live in a park and let the park walkers feed me all day. I wonder if they get water up their nose and if it hurts them when it happens like it hurts us? Do they get cold feet in the winter? What time does a duck wake up?...At the quack of dawn! Enough about ducks. Enjoy your day...

What a cute picture. When they float on the water they look so peaceful and graceful.

My thoughts too, they are graceful and interesting to watch. Glad you liked the photo, I took it in British Colombia, the west coast of Canada.

It made me laugh to see a whole bunch of them doing this, there must have been something tasty under them.

I like the 'quack of dawn'. When I see ducks swimming their hind legs are always much further back than I think they should be. I don't know how they don't tip forward into the water.

They are fascinating to watch as they float around and dive down under and come back up and float around again.

We used to have lots of ducks in our backyard when i was a child. They are one of the easiest animal to keep according to my Mom.

We had then too but we needed good fences to keep the foxes out. I had a pet duck named Wibble Wobble.

@PainsOnSlate What a cute name but it is some sort of a tongue twister.

@salonga Wibble wobble is about the way they look with they walk, a duck walk, the leaning from one side to the other. That's how she got her name.

I have often wonder if they get cold feet. When I see them in the water in winter it always makes me wonder that.

Lol!!! When our grandkids were in Florida for a figure skating completion last month, we found ducks diving in the pond, too.

I enjoy watching ducks in and around the water. I don't know what time ducks wake up but must be really early and possibly they get cold feet in the winter. You will have to ask a duck some time and maybe they will tell you, quack, quack.

@PainsOnSlate I am an adult and talk to my dogs a lot so it is not strange you would have conversations with your duck.

Ducks need water to go up their nose so its a good thing for them, unlike us. What I think is cool about ducks is their legs can not feel cold that is how they can swim in the winter.

They are very interesting birds. I did look them up on line to see how they function. It was an interesting read. I've been missing you. I hope all is well with you. Happy Easter.
