Saturday Critters – Tufted duck

I do not have much to say. Actually, I  do not have much to say, never. I’m not a talkative person. That’s why I chose to take pictures.  What should I write about photos? A photo has to speak through itself and does not need to be explained. If it does not transmit anything then it should not be published. Photo is the the world’s only universal language. It can be understood by any human being on earth.

This tufted duck  is my photo for today Saturday Crittes Challenge. What can I say about aduck? Nothing !

A duck is a duck … is not it?

Happy Saturday!

  1. I know that you don’t talk too much, but I’ll keep asking you to talk for there is a wonderful source within you which I need is a little to brighten up my days.

    Why do ducks prefer to swim rather than clawing at the ground like chicken?

    • Music, can be international, but not everyone can perform…
      Mathematics, can be considered an international language but not everyone’s a mathematician…
      Art can be considered an international language but not everyone’s an artist….

      Everyone can take pictures nowadays! That is why I said photo is the the world’s only universal language! Everyone can “speak” it! ?

  2. And that is precisely where the quote came from that says a photo is worth a thousand words. No words are needed with your incredible photography!

  3. We occasionally see Tufted Ducks in Chicago but they are extremely rare. We had one sighted a few years ago and it was the first in something like 50 years.
