2. Yes, it's real!

Taken from a kayak--they are not overly timid around kayaks if you are just sitting there parked by some tall grass. I have a few more of him but I like this one since it's head-on.

7. The Peace of Wild Things

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

~Wendell Berry

12. Thanks!

High praise coming from you! Between the kayak and the zoom lens, some good shots are possible. There are a lot of wood ducks on that river.
