You know I love ducks...in fact, I was hoping that zrmi would choose Ducks as an "On Assignment" theme, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I was waiting to spring this one on ya! These are Disneyland Ducks...they cruise around over by the "Nemo" submarine ride...and eat popcorn and french fries til they are stuffed.

The reflection in the water is the wooden fence/lattice that prevents you from falling in the"pond"..

Oh, I got a ton of the ducks!! Big Pix, this little quacker is for you...

BEFORE popcorn, a bag of cheetos, an old hot dog bun, two bites of coffee cake, a quick paddle back to the "rock".

Image


AFTER popcorn: and one picture tells the tale of "I can't believe I ate the whole thing". I hate when that happens

Since you like ducks I thought I would show you one of mine.

Not my best photo, but I liked it because it was a cold day and they were all snuggling up three in a row. :? Too cold to swim I guess!
