There are so many things I admire about this shot that my sister took recently at Norman, Oklahoma’s Duck Pond. For starters, the look on the expression of the central figure’s face. The duck has clearly just been attacked and physically pushed to the side. But it couldn’t care less. It just ignores it, looks forward, steadfast and true. Don’t you wish we could all exert such grace under trials and tribs that life offers us? Meanwhile, I’m equally intrigued by the general lack of concern of the duck behind him – considering it’s surely next. Lastly, the gall of the goose. This is, after all, Duck Pond, and it’s biting the park’s namesake for no apparent reason. Come on!
