White Ducks


White Duck

I captured these little ducks in a pond at an Apple Orchard I was visiting…They were so beautiful…. I just loved the balls of feathers on top of their heads.
There’s this song that came to my thoughts while looking at these ducks that was a favorite of mine when I was a child and this is how I remember how it went. Burl Ives sings it the best.

The Little White Duck

There’s a little white duck, sitting in the water
A little white duck, doing what he oughter
He took a bite of a lily pad
He Flapped his wings and he said, “I’m glad…I’m a little white duck sitting in the water
Quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack, quack”
There’s a little green frog swimming in the water
A little green frog, doing what he oughter
He jumped right off of the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said, “I’m glad…I’m a little green frog swimming in the water
Ribbit, Ribbit, Ribbit”
There’s a little black bug floating on the water
A little black bug doing what he oughter
He tickled the frog on the lily pad
That the little duck bit and he said, “I’m glad…I’m a little black bug floating on the water
Buzz, Buzz, Buzz”
There’s a little red snake slithering in the water
A little red snake doing what he oughter
He frightened the duck and the frog so bad
He ate the little bug and he said, “I’m glad…I’m a little red snake slithering in the water
hiss, hiss, hiss”
Now there’s nobody left sitting in the water
Nobody left doing what he oughter
There’s nothing left but the lily pad
The duck and the frog swam away, I’m sad
‘Cause there’s nobody left sitting in the water…Boo, hoo, hoo”

  1. When my wife and I were young we had a place that included some goats and chickens and ducks. The ducks were crested like these and came in different colors, all quite beautiful. The largest duck looked like these white ducks and was named Fletcher and he was….well…..a homosexual rapist. I have no other way of saying that. He would overpower other male ducks only.
    Anyhow, nice photo, and don’t resent this comment, please.
