It's a holiday here, 4th of July, and I am wondering what I am doing up so early. Reminded me of this fellow, so I thought I would share him.
I wandered up on him and took several shots. Take a close look at his eye. The eyelid is closed. I should say one of his eyelids is closed. Ducks have an eyelid they use under the water, an eyelid for blinking and then a eyelid like you and me.
When I wandered up on him -- he was apparently sleeping. He stayed like that, then opened his eyelid to take note of me. Assured that I was no threat, he closed his eyes and continued to enjoy his nap in the warm sun and cool water.
You should do the same -- go back to bed. Take a nap. Enjoy sleeping in. It's a holiday
