Duck on the wing
The pond has attracted a pair of ducks. At least, I usually see them in a pair. Today, I spot the male only. As I pull out my camera it takes flight, and I capture it as it heads to the other side of the pond. Trying to get as far away from me as possible.
Completely unlike the dog that was being walked past me ten minutes earlier. No lead, it jumped up to “greet” me. I stopped walking and the owner called it ineffectually. It finally ceased its unwanted attention, leaving me with muddy paw prints on my hoody. No apology was forthcoming. It’s dog owners, not dogs, that receive the bulk of my approbation.
