Today I wish to tell you about a jealous secret I have had for many years and it is to do with my mother! This secret jealousy has made me want to steal!! And, of course, once I steal (which I haven’t yet!), I will then have to lie! None of this is good practise for family relations which at present are in fine form!
So thus I will begin my confessional:
It is to do with ducks….duck feathers to be exact!
Did you know that male ducks have a little curly feather near their tails…sort of on top of their back but at the tail end? Well maybe you should take a look one day, they are very wonderful. And the wonderful thing about them is the shape of the feather. Oh dear, I don’t believe I am expressing myself very well at all…perhaps a photo would be better. This is not terribly clear but you will be able to see what I mean I hope!
So the jealousy is down to the fact that Mother found not one but two drake tail feathers! And she won’t give one to me (mind you, I wouldn’t give them away either!) and I know it may not seem like much to you……
Anyway I was allowed to take photos of them and so in honour of how much I like them I placed one of them on red cloth:
Here are the two of them free styling!
Anyway, I was in the process of forcing my mother to look at my blog (which I do once a week whether she likes it or not!) and she was looking at the one where I took photos of the large dragonfly. Anyway then she said, “I’ve got one of those!” and proceeded to rush to a secret place (she has many) and pulled out a box. And in that box was this:
I took a series of photos and close ups which follow (Don’t forget, one click over one of these photos and they become nice and big):
Sadly I put the dragonfly on the royal red carpet too but one of its’ legs got caught and came right off….Oops!
To finish, here’s a rather jolly photo of a slightly smug and self satisfied duck!
And that’s all!
See Ya xx
