A wonderful ballet Mary!
Mary MacADNski: It most certainly is, Richard. This and bathing are fun to watch, as well as the flying lessons of course.

Love it!
Mary MacADNski: I love how you can tell they are young ducks, so skinny/undeveloped.
Ducks' Ditty
All along the backwater,
Through the rushes tall,
Ducks are a-dabbling,
Up tails all!

Ducks' tails, drakes' tails,
Yellow feet a-quiver,
Yellow bills all out of sight
Busy in the river!

Slushy green undergrowth
Where the roach swim—
Here we keep our larder,
Cool and full and dim.

Everyone for what he likes!
We like to be
Heads down, tails up,
Dabbling free!

High in the blue above
Swifts whirl and call—
We are down a-dabbling
Up tails all!
Mary MacADNski: I love that you have been inspired to add poetry. A highlight for me.
Well the chances of this happening, they are well practiced
Mary MacADNski: Learning from the day they are born.
Now that is where the idea came from Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I have a granddaughter who is into it. Amazing. I tried the simplest of maneuvers and could not do them.

Brilliant! love it smile
Mary MacADNski: Thank you. A moment in the life of a dabbling duck.
Great shot Mary, it tempts the phrase 'bottoms up!'
Mary MacADNski: It does absolutely bring that to mind. It was almost the title.

Mary MacADNski: I understood it well. I will see if I can find a song I sang in a competition as a child.
