I drove up to the gas pump on Christmas Day and there he (she?) sat a short distance away, completely content, despite all the people and vehicles around. I got out my camera and snapped a shot.
As I was getting back in my car after pumping, the duck stood up:
I walked closer, as did some guy who was also taking photos. The duck remained as content as could be, almost like a pet. Maybe a rescue who hopped away from his/her rescuer for some fresh air?
I considered picking up the duck and taking him/her with me, but what would I do with a duck other than marvel at it?
That’s all for this year, see ya in 2011, have a fun-filled, safe weekend!
