Male mallard duck (drake), Nanaimo, B.C., Vancouver Island, Canada
Whats to love? The glorious golden light, the natural light, him looking at me, us curious about each other, the colors, the water droplets on his feathers, the composition, the golden curvy blurred water on which he paddles, the beauty and aaaaaahhhh that I felt when out there … and … the number of hours that I was out there on that pond because it was such a gorgeous day, that I never wanted to go back indoors.
We truly just do have ONE moment. This moment. The last moment. The next moment.
Life is way too short. Choose your moments wisely. Poof! It will all be gone too soon.
Thank you Mr. Drake, for the unexpected lessons I was reminded of, by photographing you.
