The Duck

Behold the duck
It does not cluck
A cluck it lacks.
It quacks.
It is specially fond
Of a puddle or a pond.
When it dines or sups,
It's bottoms up.

Ogden Nash

Gotta love the ducks. A duckless world wouldn't be much fun at all.

A very nicely composed shot, and you've caught the humour in it perfectly with the Nash rhyme!
Guest 06-Nov-2008 21:53
Great words, they made me smile and do the image justice.
