Travel Photo of the Day (May 25)

If I had to stick my butt up in the air to eat I would probably starve to death.  I might have been more willing when I was in my 20s and didn’t have to worry each summer if I would fit into my summer clothes.  This little guy is much braver than me or hungrier.  And the ringlets on the tail are adorable.  I took this photo at The Serpentine in Hyde Park, London.

    That is such an awesome picture!!! The little curlie q’s on the tail—-never saw those before on a duck! Love it!

  4. And even if you did stick your butt up in the air to eat I would hope that you would have pants on!!! Sorry, but I couldn’t resist. I’m finally done work for the week and I’m a little goofy 🙂

    You’ve managed to capture a portrait of the American public. LOL. Sometimes you just have to laugh at sad situations.

    LOL. Thanks for putting a smile on my face. Both you and our little web-footed friend. 🙂

      I’m glad you enjoyed it Daniel. I hope your writing is going well. Since my family has been in town I haven’t had much time to check in on blogs. I should be back next week 🙂 I hope all is well.

    I see lots of duck butts around here but not as pretty as that one lol… it’s so pretty it almost looks like a penguin face!!!

  10. So funny, made a picture just like this when I was in Verona last week. Hope it wasn’t a female duck though, making pictures of her butt 😀

    • TBM says:

      I find this way of eating to be pretty funny…but if it was me, I wouldn’t want people laughing at me. I won’t tell this duck about the comments.

    So adorable! This put a smile on my face. I wish my back side was as flattering as this little guys =)

  12. Maybe he’s got his two pin curls as a consolation prize for bottoms up fishing!

    If I had a cute butt like that, I suppose I wouldn’t mind showing it off. Great shot. 🙂

  18. Jenn says:

    This is adorable! I’ve never seen such ringlets on a duck either. Well done!

  19. Fergiemoto says:

    Ha, ha…a mooning duck! So cute, especially those little ringlets. I wonder if those ringlets are high maintenance (just kidding). Great photo!

  20. Haha! I love going to the park to feed the ducks. They are so sweet and seemingly carefree 🙂

  21. T. F. Walsh says:
