~A handsome fellow with a green head

Through the trees,

 at water’s edge,

A handsome fellow,

with a green head.

Through the Trees at Waters Edge
Through the Trees at Waters Edge

~

Enjoys a swim,

and searching for food,

head first he plunges,

unaware he is being viewed.

Using his feet,

to paddle around,

he goes in circles,

not making a sound.

Water swirls,

up he pops,

needs a breath,

off his body water drops.

Head first he tries again,

makes a wider circle,

paddles faster,

focused on his purpose.

This male Mallard made us giggle. We watched him tipping head first into the pond and using his feet to paddle around searching for seeds, plants and snails.
