a little bridge over a little creek, at Cooranbong Park, N.S.W.
all was quiet; seems everyone else was by the bigger water-ways; lake and ocean instead
Just a few Pacific Black Ducks, and I did witness through the din of the cicada chorus, one (cicada) had dropped out of an overhanging tree and was spinning around on the surface of the water. Not for long, it was soon picked up by one of these ducks; so they do fulfil a great purpose there well and truly.
I'm guessing a juvenile (Northern) Mallard since there's seemingly, not full colour on his neck yet. Or, maybe some are different, just like we are? Possibly a female too...
I think the sentinel, on duty still
while the (Northern) Mallard has a camp
If it's well written and well directed and you've got good actors to work with, acting is easy.
But making sure all the ducks are in a row is the hard part. It's very rare.
