Nature Images: Ducks Ditty

Drakes settle down for the night.
Stillness in September.
Beauty in the evening light.

Still on lookout but he’s claimed his perch.
Head sinking into body as the need to rest overcomes the will to stay alert.
Rest at last.

It was a magical few moments. Unexpected bonus at the end of the day.

Note: A ditty is ‘a short simple song’ and the term was used in The Water Babies by Charles Kingsley.
