  1. haha! My kind of photo!! Excellent, Maureen.

  2. You are astounding. What a shot

  3. I love it! My NFWS ranger son Michael is out here, and we’ve been birding together almost all day, every day this week. I can definitely relate to this picture! Ha!

    • Birding with a son! Now that’s what I would call the good life! The ducks do seem to know when to…ummm…duck.

  4. I love this! Thank you for the chuckle. I’ll pass one on. I went to the library today. Moseyed up to the second floor to turn in one book and pick up two. A senior woman was behind me, and a senior man came up behind her. He was having a little trouble walking and was a little hunched over. She said good afternoon and asked how he was. He said ‘living the life.’ I had to grit my teeth to keep from laughing out loud. How appropriate – just like your photo and poem. 🙂 Love the header shot too.

    • A chuckle exchange! I like it — and thank you! We seniors have a great sense of humor, not to mention a finely-honed sense of sarcasm. I don’t know how you kept from laughing; I’d probably have guffawed all over my books. Glad you like the header — I cheated and used an old photo; our pink trees aren’t quite to this gorgeous bubble-gum look yet. Maybe next week.

  5. That’s great! I have so many photos of empty space where some critter was doing something adorable or amazing. Thanls for the laugh 😂

  6. I have of course been reading but undercover, like the duck. This made me laugh when I first read/saw it and did the same again just now.

    • This little guy has made me laugh more than once. The little duck who isn’t there. He has two compatriots and all of them enjoy bobbing down as soon as they see me with my camera.
