Absolutely Adorable





The man in the modern-day wheelchair and the ducklings have a very special relationship. They love him as much as he loves them. They let him stroke their beaks as he fed them, and showed no fear at all. He was feeding them dry dog food. I didn't get his name ... I used "John" in the balloon because it sounded good.

Birdies will eat just about anything... Would a dog eat bird seed?

(Those Segway-style wheelchairs are wonderful.)

John always sounds good! Duck know people very well and they adopt who take the feeds and handles them well (once had a duck :))

Fénix: Is that a rhetorical question?

That's the first time I've seen someone on a Segway-style wheelchair. He seemed very comfortable on it.

Uma por Dia: Especially when it comes after Maria!!

Uma por Dia said...

Birds are very intelligent; they know a friend when they see one!

Lynette said...

Your range of subjects is amazing, GTB. The creativity of in your conversation bubbles is impressive, too. When are we gonna see your cute self?

And that is most of me in the mirror--I hadn't even noticed because all I did was look at my sons!

The ducks in the water is quite bizarre yet interesting. I had never seen a wheelchair like that.

Carletta: LOL ... I appreciate YOU!

Kate: Why did the run away from me? LOL ... just kidding. For some reason they seemed extra calm around this man.

Lynette: *bowing ... thank you, thank you! LOL ... maybe I'll take a mirror shot, or window shot, and reveal "some" of me!

Small City Scenes: Bizarre because of the 'comic book style' treatment?

I hadn't seen a wheelchair like that either ... and my thanks goes out to Fénix for identifying it as Segway-style (an amazing piece of technology).

Neva said...

I haven't seen a chair like that either but I it is no surprise to me that I learned it in blogland! Love the ducks...they really seem so sweet to him.

At first I thought it was a Segway ... another wonder of technique ... as for the ducks, a wonder of nature ...

THIS blog is a wonder of Nature!!!

Loved your shots today. Birds seem to know whether to fear a human or not. I am surprised he used dog food though - in our park there is a sign in regards to that and bread too as both swell in their stomachs, sometimes causing death. Great capture of a touching moment.

Sailor Girl said...

LOL! I read the label only now!!! LOOOL!!!

Sonia said...

Wow! You have an amazing blog! Just great!

George Townboy said...

Neva: It is amazing what we learn in Blogland!

Quintarantino: These particular ducks thrill the tourists and locals alike!

Janice Thank you!! I didn't know that about the food, thanks for pointing that out.

Sailor Girl: You are so kind! And I love the way you laugh, lol!!!

Sonia: Thank you so much! Thanks for stopping by.
