AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Duck Dreaming

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Ducks wandering the parkland at the top of Arthurs Seat, Mornington Peninsula

Camera Critters prompt #16

A duck loves walking
Walking in light rain
Walking with friends in light rain
Ducks in Wonderland

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Duck portrait in black and white
A duck loves wet grass
Wet grass is a feast
Wet grass is delectable
Duck heaven on earth

Pic by Gemma Wiseman ~ Another duck portrait
But there's always one
One who is different
One who wanders in lone thoughts
The Dreaming for ducks

Great photos and post! I think ducks are so beautiful and fun. I keep wishing we'd get some to come to our pond. ;-)
