We came across this lovely duck, resident at one of the many vineyards around here.
He’s white as snow; not that he’d know that, living in Cape Town where it never snows!
Contentedly rooting around near our pathway, he seemed quite happy to have his photo taken.
Besides this solitary brave soul, we spotted many other white ducks behind him in the undergrowth.
Even though there was a very large pond for them to swim in, they had all gathered in the vegetation under the trees.
How many can you count?
post script: ‘Ducky’ is a British form of address, meaning, ‘Dear’.
I count 13 or 14 ducks.
