The first thing you have to understand about me is that I spent a lot of time outdoors while growing up. I love the outdoors, and wildlife. So my husband has heard tons of stories about the animals I saw, and caught and played with as a kid. For years now he has wanted to catch a duck. I think it is some sort of test he came up with for himself, after hearing all about catching ducks, and after trying a few times before and not succeeding. However in the previous attempts he tried to catch country ducks. City ducks are much dumber.
The other day we went to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens and while we were there a group of JD’s came over (JD stands for Juvenile Duck.) By came over I mean they were practically standing on our feet. Ryan looked over at me and asked if he could just grab one and I looked down at them and said “yep.” And he did. I think he was too surprised to know what to do with it, but I made sure I grabbed a quick picture before he released it. So here is Ryan and his duck.
