If it Looks Like a Duck, it Might Be Two Too
 
 
To the casual observer, this just looks like one duck but look closer, there is more that meets the eye. This male duck stands guard while the female searches around for food.
 
 
He looks left, then right as she diligently forages. She is his life mate and he will warn her or fight off any other animal that attempts to do harm. Be more like this duck.
 
 
Protect with loving care, what is most valuable to you in life because in an instant it can all change. Written in loving memory of Lottie Kendalla beautiful soul, gone too soon.

Wanda,

What a lovely post, and analogy to appreciating the people around us.  And of course, your mention of Lottie Kendall .  We will all miss her. A

At first, I only saw him because he is brightly colored and then suddenly she moved Ron and Alexandra Seigel. This act of protection on behalf of the male duck to his mate spurned the post and thought it was befitting to dedicate to Lottie.

Hello Wanda - all sorts of things are gone before we realize the importance(or the impact).  Being in the moment but aware of the past is part of the path.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can!  I love your creativity! I admit, I glanced quickly at the photograph; then had to go back to find the other one. It was a good lesson for me to focus and look carefully. A lot can be missed when you just look at things at a glance.

 

Thank you!!!

At first, I did the same Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP and then realized that she is camouflaged for reasons that nature provides. He is the great protector and risks everything so that she can safely forage.

Wanda- What a lovely post and tribute to the memory of Lottie. The other day I watched as a male cardinal fed a female cardinal. There is so much we can learn if we take the time to observe nature.

I didn't notice the second duck either until I went back after reading your words. And you're right about how quickly life can change.

Instincts play a large part in nature and this duck's protective behavior would be considered chivalrous in human form Kathy Streib. Sweet Lottie always had a supporting, kind comment when visiting member's posts. She is already missed!

Several years ago, I lost a younger sister to cancer, Grant Schneider, who had just hit the 50 year mark. It was devastating, as we planned to spend our later years growing old together. That horrible disease has no boundaries and also affects the heart with enormous grief and overwhelming feelings of loss.

Dear Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! 


I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear younger sister. Tragedies like that are not supposed to happen in families. I'm sure there isn't a day, a holiday, anniversary, or a memory that doesn't escape you. Your bond as sisters must have been so special. Although taken too soon, may you always remember the good times of how lucky you were to have had such a wonderful sister. I wish she was still with you.

One duck definitely stands out while the other is camouflaged and I almost missed seeing the camouflaged duck, haha.

Was wondering why the male duck was just standing there, looking around and then I saw her Brian England. It was quite the surprise!

So true Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! . I'd like to say that sometimes we are the threat by elevating "things" in our life like focusing on money and careers over our mates needs.

In real estate it is important to stand out to attract buyers and sellers but in nature, it can be used to conceal those who matter most to ensure their survival Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400. He is a most chivalrous duck!
