duck dynamics

The other day I tried desperately to get a photo of three ducks all lined up because the idea of “getting my ducks in a row” cracked me up. I’m kind of a dork like that.

The photo wasn’t meant to be. It’s just as well.

Instead I witnessed the drama of these three negotiating the rapid current after the rain and captured the decisive moment when they parted company.
