Sunday Sunlight

Taken 2.9.2015 at Lake Arrowhead, at a very shallow end of the lake.  There was only about an inch, maybe two, of water underneath the two napping female ducks.  I marveled at how very buoyant ducks are!  I would have thought their feet would be touching the bottom, but no, they had them tucked up tight underneath their bodies.  When a slight breeze ruffled the water, the two bobbed about like rubber duckies in a bathtub, but they didn't wake up.  I wish I could sleep that soundly... 


  1. Love your photo of the sleeping ducks. Normally the expression is slept like a Lamb but those two ducks look very content.

  2. I guess they sleep very deeply and recharge in small chunks of time, then they're awake and busy again.
    Incredible buoyancy at such a shallow depth.

    Lovely pic, thank you, Victoria.

    **And, a kiss to dear Mrs. Rose. I hope you've seen her recently - perhaps given her a treat or two?
    Her darling little face looking up at you.

  3. Well what could lull you to sleep better than bobbing along in a gentle breeze on crystal clear water ... lucky ducks ;)

  4. Dear Victoria - great photo and it is amazing how those sweet ducks just float on top of the water. Hope you have a great day.

  5. Vicki, I see Mrs. Rose nearly every day. :)

    1. I'm very glad to know that. Tell her I send my very best wishes...


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment, I appreciate it!
